A 51-year-old man is accused of submitting almost $30,000 worth of fraudulent checks to local banks during a two-month period, according to a U.S. Attorney's Office release Tuesday.
U.S. Marshals arrested Davidson Alfred, of St. John, on Tuesday based on a criminal complaint filed in District Court that charges Alfred with bank fraud, an offense punishable by up to 30 years in prison.
Alfred, who appeared before District Magistrate Judge Ruth Miller, is accused of presenting forged checks to Banco Popular and FirstBank branches on St. Thomas.
Alfred presented eight fraudulent checks totaling $23,150 to Banco Popular, and two checks totaling $6,300 to FirstBank, during a two-month period, according to a statement issued Tuesday by the U.S. Attorney's Office.
The U.S. Attorney's Office did not specify when the two-month period was.
Alfred is scheduled to appear before Miller today in District Court for his detention hearing.
