Bronx Resident Arrested and Charged as a Member of a Check Fraud and Identity Theft Ring
By: Moe M.
On December 27, 2017, the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office broadcasted the arrest of a man named Kwanelle Parker on charges of Check Fraud, Theft by Deception, and Conspiracy charges. Parker is a twenty-six (26) year old resident of Bronx, New York.
Back in August 2017, the Bergen County Prosecutor’s Office were notified by a Bergen County financial officer about fraudulent checks. These checks were made and looked as if they were distributed from a Bergen County payroll account. In addition to the checks, law enforcement were able to come to the conclusion that there was illicit wire activity taking place, totaling the theft to over $50,000.00 in United States currency.
As law enforcement investigated into PARKER, they were able to find out that he worked with a few individuals, Daleska Dillerva, Anthony Peguero, and others in an effort to deposit fake checks into co-conspirators’ accounts and then withdraw money before being discovered. Daleska Dillerva and Anthony Peguero’s arrest on September 19, 2017 led law enforcement to identify and arrest PARKER.
PARKER was charged with Third-Degree Issuing or Passing Bad Checks, with a value greater than $1,000 but less than $75,000, Third-Degree Theft by Deception, with a benefit greater than $500 but less than $75,000, and Third-Degree Conspiring with Dillerva and Peguero to Commit the Issuing or Passing of Bad Checks and Theft by Deception. Kwanelle Parker is set to appear at the Central Judicial Processing Court located in Hackensack, New Jersey on January 10, 2018.
All persons are assumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
