A New York City man is in jail in Council Bluffs facing forgery and other charges.

Council Bluffs Police were called to the US Bank branch near the Mall of the Bluffs Tuesday afternoon for a person trying to obtain $7,500 from another person's account. As officers arrived, 39 year old Joey Whiting from Bronx, New York ran and was taken into custody a few blocks away after a brief struggle with police.

Police say Whiting had five fraudulent Id's in his possession, and was booked for forgery, identity theft and assaulting an officer. Whiting also has an extraditable warrant for forgery in New York.
