May 15, 2014 -- Westchester County District Attorney Janet DiFiore announced that

Jeremy Winter (DOB 09/03/82) of 51 Douglas Lane, Ridgefield, Connecticut, pled guilty today to:

  • one count of Grand Larceny in the Second Degree, a class “C” Felony,
  • one count of Scheme to Defraud in the First Degree, a class “E” Felony,

regarding the theft of funds from bank depositors.

Winter was employed as a Branch Manager at TD Bank located at 107 Chatsworth Avenue in Larchmont, New York.  

Beginning in Feb. of 2012, the defendant began making large transfers of U.S. currency out of several customers’ accounts into his own personal bank account or into a relative’s account totaling $745,000.  

The money was used to pay off the defendant’s personal loans and contractors he defendant hired to do home improvements.

In order to avoid detection, the defendant would “rob Peter to pay Paul,” basically take money from a new victim’s account in order to pay back older victims.

The total amount of the larceny that actually ended up in the defendant’s pocket was $365,000.

The defendant also forged a customer’s signature on a withdrawal slip in the amount of $100,000, thereby also creating a false business record.

The bank notified Larchmont Police and in Sept. of 2012 the District Attorney’s Office joined in the investigation.

Winter was arrested by Larchmont Police on Feb. 28, 2013.

Bail was continued at $100,000 cash or bond.

Sentencing will be on Aug. 14, 2014.

As a condition of sentencing, the defendant will pay upfront restitution of $225,000 and there will be a Judgment Order of Restitution for the remainder, $140,000.

The defendant faces a maximum sentence of 15 years in state prison.

Assistant District Attorney Robert Mayes of the Economic Crimes Bureau is prosecuting the case.
