Hanover Park men charged with defrauding bank
A 21-year-old Hanover Park man has been charged with misappropriating property from a TCF Bank in Arlington Heights where he worked.
A Cook County judge set bail at $10,000 Monday for Jovanny D. Sosa, of the 5700 block of Ring Court, who prosecutors say set up four fraudulent savings and checking accounts at a Wood Dale TCF branch. Sosa subsequently accessed those accounts from the Arlington Heights branch where he worked as a supervisor and electronically deposited $2,000 into each account, authorities allege.
According to prosecutors, Benjamin Andrade, 20, and Antonio Rodriguez, 21, both of Hanover Park, then went to ATMs and withdrew $500 from each account, resulting in TCF losing a total of $2,000.
If convicted of the class 3 felony, Sosa faces two to five years in prison. Probation is also available
Andrade and Rodriguez appeared in Rolling Meadows bond court on Tuesday afternoon on charges of misappropriating property from a financial institution, unlawful use of a credit or debit card and theft. A judge set their bail at $10,000 each. Each could face up to five years in prison if convicted of the most serious charges. Probation is also available.
None of the defendants have any criminal background, prosecutors said. They next appear in court on June 6.
