Nutley police say a Bronx man tried to use falsified
documents and cards to cash a bad check at a Nutley bank.
On Saturday, Oct. 19, bank employees called police after Nevelle
Grant, 30, tried to cash a fraudulent check.
Grant reportedly gave police a fake identity and provided personal documents, including a fake license and social security card as well as an AARP card and MasterCard, attesting to that identity. He reportedly insisted the check was written to him and signed by the rightful owner.
Police said Grant’s identity was revealed and he was arrested and charged with two counts of false government documents (the fake license and social security card), forgery, bad checks, impersonation/theft of identity and hindering.
Grant’s Bail was set at $25,000 with 10 percent option. When he was unable to post bail he was taken to Essex County Jail.
