Greenwich Time - - NEWS - By Robert Marchant

GREEN­WICH — Po­lice were called to Saks on Green­wich Av­enue on a re­port of fraud­u­lent ac­tiv­ity Thurs­day af­ter­noon.

Two men were at­tempt­ing to pur­chase $1,890 worth of mer­chan­dise, ac­cord­ing to the ar­rest re­port, when sus­pi­cions from store per­son­nel sent them on the run. The two men jumped into a white BMW and were then ap­pre­hended by of­fi­cer, po­lice said.

A fake Penn­syl­va­nia driver’s li­cense, used in the at­tempt to pur­chase goods from Saks, was found in the pos­ses­sion of one of the sus­pects, Fran­cisco Diaz-Denoly, 23, of Shake­speare Ave., the Bronx, N.Y., ac­cord­ing to po­lice.

Of­fi­cers also found mer­chan­dise from Bloom­ing­dale’s in White Plains, which was de­ter­mined to have been ac­quired with the coun­ter­feit ID, the ar­rest re­port stated.

Diaz-Denoly was charged with forgery, crim­i­nal im­per­son­ation, iden­tity theft, lar­ceny and con­spir­acy.

His al­leged co-con­spir­a­tor, Franklin Romero, 25, of North Front Street, Read­ing, Pa., was charged with the same crim­i­nal counts.

Bail was set at $5,000 for each man.
