STAMFORD, Conn. — A second suspect was arrested Monday in a Stamford identity theft case dating to September, Sgt. Peter diSpagna said.

Chevon Waynes, 29, of Long Island City, N.Y., was charged with conspiracy to commit third-degree larceny and conspiracy to commit third-degree identity theft, police said.

The charges stem from an identity theft incident at an HSBC bank in Stamford linked to one later the same day in Darien.

On Sept. 5, Stephany Jeffry, 20, was arrested in Darien and charged with trying to use a Las Vegas woman’s identification to withdraw cash at an HSBC bank. She was also accused of earlier obtaining $2,800 at a Stamford branch of the bank, police said.

While Jeffry was being held by police a vehicle matching the description of the one she was believed to have used was involved in an accident in Darien, diSpagna said. The two people in the car, Chevon Waynes and a black male, matched descriptions Jeffry gave police, he said.

Waynes was arrested by Darien Police at that time. She was arrested Monday by Stamford Police after her arraignment on the Darien charges, diSpagna said. Police did not have enough evidence to charge Waynes and the male at the scene of the incident, he said.

Waynes was released on a promise to appear on Dec. 17 for the Stamford charges. DiSpagna said she was released on a promise to appear because she had already posted a bond in Darien.

The male involved in the case has not yet been charged, diSpagna said.
