NY Woman Charged In Stamford, Darien Bank Fraud Case

Authorities in Stamford and Darien said a trio attempted to withdraw almost $6,000 from a bank account owned


A Long Island City woman has officially been charged by Stamford and Darien police for allegedly conspiring to commit bank fraud in both towns with at least one other woman back in September.

Chevon Danielle Waynes, 29, of Astoria Blvd. in NY, was identified by Sgt. Peter DiSpagna as a party wanted in connection to a September 5th incident in which a 21-year-old Bronx, NY, woman said she was hired by a pair in a vehicle to enter banks in both Stamford and Darien and attempt to withdraw funds from an account for which she was supplied false identification.

In September, Stephany Jeffry of Walton Ave. in NY, was arrested by police after she allegedly attempted to withdraw $3,000 from an HSBC bank in Darien. She also allegedly told police she withdrew $2,800 from the same account earlier at a Stamford bank branch on Broad St. 

Jeffry allegedly told police at the time of her arrest that she has been working with two others in the operation. DiSpagna said Waynes was in the vehicle at the time and was one of the parties wanted in connection to the case.

Waynes was arrested in Darien after turning herself in on charges connected to the case and held on a $25,000 bond. Upon arrival to the Stamford court house and prior to her arraignment Monday morning on charges from Darien, Stamford police arrested Waynes, charged her and returned her to court, releasing her from Stamford on a Promise To Appear as she is already being held on bond in Darien.

Waynes was charged with conspiracy to commit third-degree larceny and conspiracy to commit third-degree identity theft. Her next court date in Stamford is Dec. 17.
