Double Trouble

A trickster stole nearly $5,000 from a man who shared his name on Feb. 9.

The bank manager told police that the thief entered the Chase Bank on Fifth Avenue between 13th and 14th streets at around noon and withdrew $4,800 from the bank account of a customer who had the same first and last names.

The manager later realized that the perp was not his actual customer and called the victim and the police.

Where: 533 Fifth Ave.
