New York State Police arrested a 42-year-old man for the Class D Felonies of Grand Larceny 3rd degree and Criminal Possession of a Forged Instrument 2nd degree.
Dwight D. Fiero of Veteran’s Painting was arrested as the result of an investigation which revealed that he deposited a forged check into his bank account. The check had been issued to Veteran’s Painting for services rendered by the company. Prior to depositing the check, it was altered to indicate $10,000.00, a much higher amount than it was originally issued for.
Fiero was processed at SP Latham and arraigned at Colonie Town Court on July 22, 2019, where he was remanded to the Custody of the Albany County Sheriff’s Department without bail.
