YORKTOWN, N.Y. – A 43-year-old Bronx man is facing three felony charges in Yorktown for allegedly attempting to withdraw $7,000 from Key Bank using a stolen identity, according to the Yorktown Police Department.
Victor Reveron, already being held at Putnam County Jail, appeared before Town Justice Sal Lagonia on Tuesday, Aug. 7, to answer to the charges of second-degree possession of a forged instrument, third-degree grand larceny, and second-degree identity theft, all Class D felonies.
The alleged incident occurred on April 28 and police were called to investigate four days later. Det. George Davis made several attempts to contact Reveron, but he was uncooperative, police said. A warrant for his arrest was issued on May 15.
On Aug. 7, police responded to Putnam County Jail, where Reveron is being held on another felony charge. He was arrested and brought to Yorktown, where was arraigned by Lagonia, who set bail at $15,000 bond or $10,000 cash. Reveron was remanded back to Putnam County Jail.
A temporary order of protection for the victims was denied because, Lagonia said, Reveron does not know who they are.
He is due back in Yorktown Justice Court on Aug. 28.
A 22-year-old Ossining man is accused of stealing more than $1,000 from Hudson River Financial Federal Credit Union, police said.

Beef Stick Theft
A 48-year-old Yorktown man is accused of stealing two Jack Link’s beef sticks from a Shrub Oak gas station before leading police on a brief chase, police said.
After allegedly stealing the beef sticks, valued at $4.88, the man left the Shell gas station in his car. Officers Ryan Noone and Michael Campion attempted to have the man pull over, but the Yorktown man allegedly fled and violated a few traffic laws in the process, such as failure to use a blinker and speeding, police said.
The man eventually pulled over in the driveway of an Old Yorktown Road home, where he allegedly refused to take a breathalyzer test, police said. He was also allegedly in possession of marijuana.
He was charged with petty larceny, driving while intoxicated, and unlawfully fleeing an officer in a motor vehicle, all misdemeanors; and unlawful possession of marijuana, a violation.
The man was released on $250 bail.

He was issued an appearance ticket for the Westchester County Department of Probation.
