Jose Dasilva, 41, of Kinnelon, was charged with identity theft, forgery, criminal simulation, and hindering apprehension, according to Police Capt. Eric Amato.
Dasilva was taken into custody at about 1:30 p.m. yesterday from the area of TD Bank, located at 1066 Broadway.
Officers responded to the scene on a report of a man, later identified as Dasilva, attempting to withdraw money from an account not belonging to him while utilizing a fraudulent driver’s license.
They were able to intercept Dasilva in the parking lot and the on-scene investigation led to him being positively identified as the actor.
During the investigation and arrest process, Dasilva provided false pedigree information to the arresting officers and faced an additional charge for doing so, police said.
