Forgery Charge for 31-Year-Old Man


Police on Nov. 5 arrested a 31-year-old Stamford man and charged him with third-degree forgery.

At about 6:18 p.m. on that Sunday, an officer on patrol stopped the car the man was driving because it was not registered, according to a police report.

Through a subsequent investigation, authorities established probable cause to bring the misdemeanor charge against the man, who was driving, the report said.

Under state law, a person is guilty of third-degree forgery if he or she “with intent to defraud, deceive or injure another, he falsely makes, completes or alters a written instrument, or issues or possesses any written instrument which he knows to be forged.” 

The man also was cited for falsifying a marker plate, operating a motor vehicle without a license, illegal operation of a motor vehicle without insurance and operating an unregistered motor vehicle.

He was released after promising to appear Nov. 17 in state Superior Court. The man has not yet pleaded, according to Connecticut Judicial Branch records, and is scheduled for arraignment Dec. 7.
