Tuckahoe Woman Has Checks Forged

20 year-old Michael Gladstein of Armonk was arrested by Tuckahoe PD for allegedly signing two checks totaling $2,350 that he got from a Tuckahoe woman's checkbook.


Tuckahoe Police have arrested Michael Gladstein of 12 Stony Brook Pl. in Armonk and charged him with two counts of criminal possession of a forged instrument, both felonies.

The arrest stems from a report Tuckahoe PD received from a Tuckahoe woman who stated that when she was checking her bank account, she discovered two checks were made out to Gladstein, totalling $2,350.

The 51 year-old victim has a daughter that is apparently friends with Gladstein and police say that connection is likely how the checks got into his possession.

Gladstein is being held in the county jail on $7,500 bond.

According to Tuckahoe PD, Gladstein was in the victim's home over the last few weeks and allegedly wrote two checks from the woman's checkbook, one for $350 and the other for $2,000, made out to himself.

He deposited the checks in his own bank account, police said.

The bank put a hold on the larger check police said and Gladstein surrendered to village PD on Wednesday Sept. 12. and is due back in court later this month.

My mom had this very scenario happen to her from one of my sister's boyfriends too. It's really unfortunate when you allow people into your house and they violate your trust like that.
