Kikhil Kumar, 23, of West Hartford, turned himself into Southington police on Thursday, Oct. 6, at approximately 9 p.m. after learning of an active warrant for his arrest for depositing stolen checks.

The warrant alleges that KUmar deposited two stolen checks into his bank account in early August via a local ATM machine, and he made a third fraudulent transaction with a stolen check via a banking app. The transactions totaled $764.64.

The stolen checks were from an account held by Kumar’s former girlfriend.

He was processed and charged with fifth degree larceny and two counts of fraudulent use of an auto teller machine. He was released on a $2,500 bond and is scheduled to appear in Bristol Superior Court on Oct. 17, 2016.
