YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A fingerprint check proved that an East Harlem fugitive gave a false name to Wyckoff police after she tried withdrawing $2,200 from the real person’s bank account, authorities said.

Nicole S. Bell, 24, had a New York driver’s license “in the name of a legitimate account holder,” Police Chief Benjamin C. Fox said this morning.

Alerted by the bank manager, police took her into custody, Fox said.

She identified as Monique Gomez, he said.

Fingerprinting at headquarters showed otherwise.

Bell, who lives in the Lehman Village city housing project on 108th Street, was wanted out of several jurisdictions in New Jersey and New York, Fox said.

Wyckoff police charged her with false impersonation, possession of a fraudulent government document, providing false information to law enforcement (hindering), forgery and attempted theft.

She was being held on $75,000 bail in the Bergen County Jail.
