Four suspects were arrested yesterday after police set up and searched a perimeter area around Earhart Road in Essex during a call of a fraud in progress.

Three of the suspects fled the TD Bank in the 1800 block of Eastern Boulevard, 21221 when police responded around 11:30 a.m. Officers were given information that one of the suspects may have been armed with a gun, so roadways were closed around Earhart Road as police set up and searched for the suspects. A female suspect, identified as Danielle Guzzetti (52) of the 1400 block of McBride Street in Queens, New York, was arrested on the parking lot of the bank.

The investigation determined that Guzzetti and the three male suspects recently traveled from New York to Baltimore with the intentions of using fake identification cards to defraud various TD Bank facilitates and customers. Wednesday, the suspects drove together to TD Bank on Eastern Boulevard. Guzzetti used a fraudulent identification card at the drive-through teller, asking to be given a debit card associated with an account that did not belong to her. A bank employee recognized the woman's fraudulent actions and called police.

The three male suspects are identified as Denzil Bailey (22) of the 800 block of Van Siclen Avenue in Brooklyn, New York, Sha-lee Felder (20) of the 300 block of Vernon Avenue in Brooklyn, New York, and Lenny Smalls (19) of the 300 block of Bristol Street in Brooklyn, New York. They were located during the search hiding together in the 1700 block of Earhart Road, 21221.

All four suspects are charged with possession/use of a false government identification and displaying the government identification of another. They were all released on their own recognizance.
