A 54-year-old Chicago man is accused of trying to withdraw $12,000 deposited into a Bank of America account using a bad check.
Richard B. Stewart, of the 300 block of West 134th Street, was charged with deceptive practice, according to an Orland Park police report.
Police said a $24,900 check was drawn from one account and deposited into Stewart's account on Oct. 11 at a California-based Bank of America branch, the report states. Police spoke with the account holder and discovered that he had not deposited the check.
Stewart was arrested and charged with felony financial institution fraud, the report states. He was due on Oct. 12 in Bridgeview court.
