NEW YORK (AP) - A New York City prosecutor says investigators have uncovered a forgery and theft scheme that stretched from Manhattan to Boston.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus R. Vance, Jr. says Jeremey Wilson was indicted on forgery and possession of stolen property and other charges. He pleaded not guilty and was held on $1 million bail.

His attorney Ed Hayes had no comment.

Prosecutors say the 42-year-old fraudulently acquired apartments and a car before being apprehended last month.

They say he posed as an airline executive to obtain a corporate apartment in Boston. He also allegedly used fraudulently obtained money to rent another apartment in New York’s financial district.

Wilson also is accused of stealing a corporate credit card and forging checks. Prosecutors say one check was used to lease a 2016 BMW.
