A Bolingbrook man was charged with committing financial crimes against a 70-year-old man, police said.
On Dec. 18, family members of the 70-year-old man contacted the Joliet Police Department about possible fraudulent activity in his bank account, according to a Joliet police news release.
During the course of an investigation, detectives were able to determine that Anthony J. McInerney, 24, of the 1000 block of Briarcliff Road was involved and the detectives obtained a warrant for his arrest earlier this month, police said.
On Wednesday, officers conducted a search warrant in the 300 block of West Dickens Avenue in Chicago and McInerney was taken into custody, police said. The Dickens Avenue residence is listed as another address for McInerney, according to the county jail log.
McInerney was taken to the Will County jail about 12:50 p.m. Wednesday. McInerney was released several hours later after he posted 10% of his $300,000 bond.
McInerney’s criminal case remains sealed in Will County court as of Thursday.
McInerney faces charges of continuing a financial criminal enterprise, aggravated identity theft, identity theft and defrauding a financial institution, according to the county jail log.
On Jan. 11, 2016, McInerney pleaded guilty to misdemeanor disorderly conduct while a charge of criminal trespass was dropped in the case, court records show.
