Staten Island NY woman swiped checks from dentist’s office, then cashed them with her boyfriend, police allege

STATEN ISLAND, N.Y. — An Annadale woman is accused of swiping 14 blank checks from the dentist’s office where she used to work, so she and her boyfriend could line their pockets with thousands of dollars.

Alyssa Decicco, 24, of Van Allen Avenue, who worked at a dental office in Annadale, grabbed the checks sometime between Oct. 28 and Jan. 7, police allege.

She and her boyfriend, Patrick Smith, 26, of Cranford Street in Great Kills, then went to the New York Community Bank at 2555 Richmond Ave., where, on 13 different occasions, he cashed the checks in his name, police allege. They got $5,500 in all, but they met with failure on the 14th try, on Jan. 7, court papers allege.

“That’s me in the video still. I cashed 13 checks and attempted to do number 14,” Smith told police, according to court papers.

Both were arrested last week and charged with multiple felonies and misdemeanors, including third-degree grand larceny and second-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, according to information from District Attorney Daniel Donovan’s office.
