Bronx Man Gets 1-3 Years for Stealing Identities

A Bronx man was sentenced to one to three years in prison Wednesday for stealing the identities of several Suffolk County residents.
Suffolk County District Attorney Raymond A. Tierney said that Donald Archibald, 44,  was sentenced after he pleaded guilty in February to multiple counts of grand larceny and identity theft and then using their personal identifying information to obtain money. One of his victims is a Huntington resident.
According to court documents and the defendant’s admissions during his guilty plea allocution, on
April 13, 2023, at approximately 12:12 p.m., after obtaining his first victim’s Suffolk County
address and contact information off the dark web, Archibald entered an M&T Bank in Bridgeport, Conn., and showed a false driver’s license to the bank teller. The license displayed the
victim’s correct name and address but had depicted Archibald’s face. Archibald presented the
teller with a withdrawal slip and withdrew $2,000 from the victim’s checking account.
Later that same day, at approximately 12:36 p.m., Archibald entered a different M&T Bank branch
in Bridgeport, Conn.,  and used the same Suffolk County resident’s bank account information
and a “washed” check to withdraw $3,000 in cash from the victim’s account.
In a similar scheme, on April 14, 2023, after once again obtaining another Suffolk County
resident’s personal information off the dark web, Archibald entered a TD Bank in Philadelphia and, similarly, displayed a false driver’s license with a picture of his own face but with the victim’s information. Archibald then cashed a $4,500 “washed” check issued in the name
of the victim.
On Feb. 9, Archibald pleaded guilty to the following charges before Supreme Court
Justice Richard Ambro:
 One count of Grand Larceny in the Third Degree, a Class D felony;
 Two counts of Identity Theft in the First Degree, Class D felonies;
 One count of Grand Larceny in the Fourth Degree, a Class E felony; and
 One count of Identity Theft in the Second Degree, a Class E felony.
