A Freeport man faces identity theft charges after he tried to withdraw money with a fake ID at a Lynbrook bank, reported Nassau County Police.

Emanuel Hernandez, 23, of Freeport, tried to cash a check using a forged California license at Citibank on Merrick Road Thursday, cops said. Hernandez returned to Citibank and tried to cash a $2,000 check using the same fake ID Tuesday morning, police reported.

Lynbrook Police arrested Hernandez at 9:50 a.m. Tuesday and found him with the forged license and $600 in cash, officers stated. The money was returned to the bank.

Hernandez was charged with first-degree identity theft, second-degree possession of a forged instrument, and fourth-degree grand larceny. He will be arraigned Wednesday at First District Court in Hempstead.
