A 49-year-old man tried to withdraw money from an account at HSBC Bank under a false name on Thursday, but police were called, and he was arrested, police said. Darien police described what happened with this account, including accusations not proven in court:

The man entered HSBC Bank at 151 Post Road shortly before 1:30 p.m. and tried to withdraw the money using a falsified New Jersey driver’s license and bank cards, all bearing the name “William Evans.” Something made bank employees suspicious, and police were called. When they arrived, police questioned the man, who told them his name is “William Evans.” He said he was at the bank to withdraw money.
