WALLINGFORD – A New Hampshire man faces charges after police said he attempted to withdraw money from a town bank while impersonating a bank customer from Colorado. 

Tyson Hazelton, 40, of Concord, New Hampshire, was charged Friday with first-degree forgery, third-degree identity theft, attempt to commit third-degree larceny, interfering with an officer and fugitive from justice, according to a police press release.

On Friday, police responded to Wells Fargo Bank, 872 N. Colony Road, on a report of a man impersonating a Colorado man while trying to withdraw $5,000 from that person’s account. The Colorado man is a Wells Fargo customer. 

Police said Hazelton had a fake Colorado license with the customer’s name and address. He also had a sticky note with the account, balance and PIN information, as well as what appeared to be a fake HSBC Mastercard. Police also found another fake Colorado license and a Sovereign Visa card issued to another person.

A responding officer approached Hazelton, who shoved the officer while attempting to flee, the press release said. Police used a Tazer to subdue Hazelton and take him into custody.

When police determined Hazelton’s identity, they discovered he was wanted in New Hampshire for a parole violation.  

Hazelton’s bond was set at $500,000.
