ROCKLAND COUNTY, N. Y. -- Two Rockland County men are facing criminal charges after officials linked them to a widespread scheme to defraud local banks in Rockland and Orange counties, as well as Bergen County, lohud.com reports.

Lawrence Lazard, of Route 202 in Haverstraw, and Fabrice Stinfil, of George Street in Spring Valley, were indicted Thursday, June 9. Lazard faces 25 counts of criminal possession of a forged instrument, three counts of grand larceny while Stinfil faces grand larceny and criminal facilitation charges, lohud.com says.

Authorities accuse Lazard of deposting fraudulent money orders at various banks, then drawing on the money before the fraud became evident. Fourteen financial institutions in Rockland County lost close to $300,000 in the scam, lohud.com reports.
