[ARCHIVED] ARREST MADE: EXTORTION

NRPD Press Release

On June 24th, 2022, New Rochelle Detectives arrested one Jose Maldonado, 51 years of age, of the Bronx, for Larceny by Extortion. Mr. Maldonado was involved in a scheme where a New Rochelle resident was contacted via telephone and told that her grandson was in custody and injured, and that she needed to get $30000 cash to secure his release. Multiple calls were made preying on the emotions of the victim for her grandson and some money was given to the suspect. New Rochelle Police were contacted, and a ruse was set up to have the suspect get the rest of the cash. As the suspect approached the house, New Rochelle Detectives converged on the suspect and he was taken into custody without incident. This type of scheme is a common occurrence and residents should take great caution when receiving calls such as these where professional thieves use techniques to prey on the emotions of unsuspecting victims.

ARRESTED:
