Chris Hansen The Former Host Of “To Catch a Predator” Busted Bouncing Two Checks For $13,000 In Connecticut
Hansen turned himself in to cops on Monday after allegedly bouncing two checks over the last two years with a Stamford store.
Stamford Police claim Hansen ordered the expensive items from Promotion Sales Limited in the summer of 2017. He wrote a check in the summer of 2017 that bounced. He also wrote another bad check to the same store last year that also bounced.
The Stamford Advocate is reporting the TV personality ordered 355 ceramic mugs, 288 shirts, and 650 vinyl decals.
Police warned Hanson he could be busted for larceny after the first check bounced. They advised him to make good on the check immediately.
Stamford Police investigator Sean Coughlin:
Hansen wrote Promotion Sales Limited owner Peter Psichopaidas after the second check bounced. Hanson claimed he believed he had the check covered.
Chris Hansen wrote in an email:
Hansen did not send another check, according to authorities. As a result, he was charged with issuing a bad check and is expected to appear in court next week.
“To Catch a Predator” used hidden cameras to catch sex predators preying on children.
