Police seek identity thief

October 29, 2003

Albany -- Investigators say this identity thief cashed three checks in Albany worth $10,450. Within an hour and a half August 22nd, this man hit three Suntrust Banks on Westover Road, Gillionville Road, and in Lee County.

Investigators say he cashed identical counterfeit checks from the account of a man in DeKalb County. That man only learned his account had been looted last week.

Investigator Darrin Abner said "He presented the checks along with some ID that he had created. Presented himself as the actual account holder. He provided the account number for the account. Unbeknown to the teller, they went ahead and cashed the checks out based on the amount of fund available in the account."

Investigators say they believe this same man also cashed counterfeit checks in Columbus recently. They don't know if he is from the Albany area, but if you have any information, please call the Albany Police Department.
