Albany -- Dougherty County Police are asking for your help to find three people accused of passing counterfeit checks.

 They cashed fake payroll checks at several Albany businesses, taking thousands of dollars, but were easily identified, because they gave their real names.

These are surveillance photos taken at the Wash House on Slappey March 28th, when Investigators say 43 year old Karen Brimite, also known as Karen Wadkins cashed a counterfeit payroll check for more than $600. Now Investigators want her for multiple counts of forgery. This is 34 year old Kayla Lewis, also caught on surveillance video Investigators say cashing another fake check. And then Police say 43 year old Gregory Williams also was caught on video cashing another counterfeit check. Now all three are wanted. 

Dougherty County Police Captain Jimmy Sexton said "surprisingly it's not unusual for them to use their real names when they cash these checks."

Investigators want your help finding these three, and find out who made those counterfeit checks. Call the Dougherty County Police at 430-6600, or CRIME STOPPERS at 436-TIPS.
