BROOKLYN - Police say a Brooklyn man has been stealing from bank accounts across Nassau County.

Steven Colon is being arraigned today for identity theft.

Police say Colon went into a Hempstead Wells Fargo Bank and said he lost his debit card.

Colon then allegedly used a fake identity to get another card, drove to the Herrick's Wells Fargo and tried to withdraw $8,000.

That is when an employee recognized the man from a fraud alert and called police.

Police say the man has taken $12,000 from several accounts.
