Forgery, Larceny and Credit Card Fraud Charges for Greenwich Teen

Ahmed Raza Rajput, 19, of 30 Brookside Drive #1C was arrested after turning himself in on Sunday, Jan 10 on an outstanding warrant.

Mr. Amhed was wanted for Forgery 2nd degree, Credit Card fraud, Conspiracy to Commit Larceny 6th degree and Larceny 6th degree for an incident on Oak Ridge Street stemming back to Oct. 17, 2015 in which he allegedly used a stolen credit card to obtain goods for his personal use at Chipotle Restaurant, Cosi Restaurant and to purchase a computer at Best Buy, which he then re-sold for profit.

He was processed, assigned a court date in Stamford Superior Court on Jan. 18, and released from custody on a Promise to Appear.

Just this past summer Mr. Rajput was arrested and charged with Larceny 6th and Forgery 1st degree after police received a report of counterfeit US currency being passed at a restaurant on West Putnam Ave. In that incident, management was able to provide the officers with a description and name of the suspect who was located by Greenwich Police officers while he was walking back to his apartment and was identified as Raza Rajput.

Rajput told Police that he received counterfeit bills, did go to the restaurant, and did use the bills there. The United States Secret Service was contacted to assist in this investigation as it involves counterfeit US currency.
