A man was extradited Wednesday on a warrant for attempting to withdraw money from another person's bank account.

John Joseph Crane, 57, of Patchogue on Long Island, was arrested at the Nassau County Correctional Center by Greenwich Police on a warrant for an event that took place August, said the Greenwich Police Department.

According to police, on August 6, Crane allegedly entered a local bank masquerading as a customer and attempted to withdraw money from that person's account.

Bank officials thought that Crane's behavior was suspicious and contacted police. Crane fled before police arrived.

An intensive investigation was initiated which resulted in Crane being identified and an extraditable arrest warrant was obtained and he was subsequently arrested in New York, police said.

Crane was charged with attempted larceny, identity theft, criminal impersonation, and forgery.

He is being held on $200,000 bond.
