SUSPECT SOUGHT FOR CASHING A BOGUS CHECK AT BUSINESS FOR NEARLY $4,000
The Bossier Financial Crimes Task Force and Bossier Crime Stoppers are asking the public for help with identifying and finding a woman who cashed a fraudulent check at a local business in the amount of almost $4000.
The transaction was made last month at a business whose security camera caught an image of the suspect. The business accepted the check after the suspect provided an identification card that turned out to be a fake.
Anyone who can help the BFCTF locate this suspect is asked to call Bossier Crime Stoppers at (318) 424-4100. Callers to Crime Stoppers are reminded they may remain totally anonymous and could be eligible for a cash reward for information that leads to an arrest.
The Bossier Financial Crimes Task Force is composed of white collar crime investigators with the Bossier City Police Department and Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office. Bossier City Chief of Police Shane McWilliams and Bossier Parish Sheriff Julian Whittington formed the task force by combining resources from both agencies to combat crimes such as identity theft, fraud and embezzlement with the city and parish.
