Bad check artist on police radar

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Dougherty County Police want you to help identify a woman passing a counterfeit check worth $867.

Investigators say she cashed the check at Acree Beverage Company on Sylvester Road on November first.

The woman bought $379 worth of liquor, and got $487 in change. Investigators want to know if other businesses have seen her or the phony checks.

"It's a possibility. This is the only one we know of, so far. Like I said it's for Suncoast Behavioural Health Center, and it's says out of Bradenton, Florida. That's the name on the account, but it is a counterfeit check," said Lt. Chad Kirkpatrick Dougherty Co. Police.

If you can help identify that woman, or know anything about these counterfeit checks, you could earn a reward. Call CRIMESTOPPERS at 436-TIPS, or Dougherty County Police.
