Johnston police have identified a man suspected of involvement in a bank fraud scheme.

Authorities say James J. Pesaturo Jr., 32, deposited 13 checks from various financial institutions, totaling $9,000, into three separate accounts at the TD Bank branch at 1547 Atwood Ave. He is then said to have withdrawn cash prior to the checks – all written on previously closed accounts – being returned to the bank.

A felony arrest warrant has been issued for Pesaturo on a charge of obtaining money under false pretenses.

Pesaturo – whose last known address is in Johnston – is described as standing 5 feet, 8 inches tall and weighing 190 pounds, with light brown hair and hazel eyes.

Anyone with information regarding Pesaturo’s location is asked to call Johnston police at 401-231-4210, ext. 3146. Detective Anthony Sasso is investigating.
