Identify Theft Suspect Ordered to Jail, Probation
Tyrone Todd, 54, will spend a year in the Oakland County Jail, records show.
A man arrested at a Bloomfield Township bank while attempting to cash a fraudulent check created with a stolen identity was recently sentenced to jail.
Tyrone Todd, 54, will serve one year in the Oakland County Jail for his conviction on identity theft charges, Oakland County court records show. Oakland County Circuit Judge Martha Anderson also ordered Todd to serve two years probation and pay roughly $1,000 in fines and fees. During probation, Todd must take bi-weekly drug tests and refrain from using any Chase Bank.
Bloomfield Township police officers arrested Todd on Aug. 29 when he tried to withdraw $8,800 from a valid account using another person's identity at the Chase Bank branch at 1116 W. Long Lake Road, police reports said. The victim was from Southfield.
Todd, of Eastpointe, pleaded guilty as charged to one count of identity theft, and being a habitual offender for his fourth offense in November, court records show.
Moneka Sanford, Todd's defense attorney, did not respond to a request to comment on the case Wednesday.
State prison records show Todd was also convicted in Wayne County of assault with a dangerous weapon in 2008, and served nearly all three years of a maximum three-year prison sentence before his release in late 2010.
