Albany --  Albany Police are still searching the area, and asking for your help to locate a counterfeit check forger who looks like a nice guy, even if he's committed felonies.

There are several surveillance camera photos of the suspect. They are clear shots of a man police say has been passing counterfeit checks, even smiling at times.

Police charge he entered two different branches of an Albany bank May 22nd and cashed two counterfeit checks. It happened within minutes of each other.  A fake payroll check from a South Georgia furniture distribution center was used to get more than $3,500 at one bank.

About 45 minutes later at a second bank, another counterfeit check was cashed for about the same amount.

"The merchant, his bank eventually alerted him and then over a period of time, he did his own investigation and discovered that the checks that were cashed were counterfeit copies of one of his real checks," said Sgt. Julius Culp with Albany Police.

The man faces two counts of forgery and two counts of negotiating fictitious checks. Those charges are felonies. If you have any information about this person, call CRIMESTOPPERS at 229-436-TIPS.
