A New York man was arrested on multiple counts of aggravated forgery and other charges after making nearly $20,000 in fraudulent withdrawals from TD Bank branches in Greater Portland on Thursday, police said.

Darryl I. Morgan, 49, of the Bronx, was arrested as he was leaving the Windham TD Bank branch at 756 Roosevelt Trail after making fraudulent withdrawals at bank branches on Allen Avenue and Forest Avenue in Portland, Main Street in Gorham and Ossipee Trail in Standish, the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office said. It later resent a mugshot of the suspect that listed his name as Darryl Iverson Mangum.

The sheriff’s office said bank employees at the Standish branch reported that Morgan had entered the bank and claimed to be a specific account holder.

They said he produced a photo ID containing the account holder’s name and personal identifying information of the actual account holder. He withdrew $4,700 from the account and left.

Standish branch employees were then alerted by TD Bank’s fraud division that Morgan, who is black, was not the actual account holder, who is white. The bank fraud division determined that Morgan had also made similar withdrawals using other account holders’ information at other branches within the past four hours.

When Morgan tried to withdraw money from the Windham branch, employees reported to Windham police that a man matching Morgan’s description was at their location.


He was arrested before he could complete another withdrawal.

Morgan was taken to the Cumberland County Jail, where he was charged with multiple counts of aggravated forgery, theft by deception, misuse of identification, and failure to provide a correct name and date of birth to police. Bail was set at $150,000 and he was scheduled to appear at Portland Unified Court on Friday.

Police said they are investigating whether Morgan is connected to any other fraud incidents in New England.

None of the victim bank account holders are Maine residents.
