Police Seek Help Identifying Bank Fraud Suspect
The suspect has used a stolen identity to cash fraudulent checks in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware.
The Warminster Police Department is asking the public's help in identifying a check fraud suspect that has hit banks in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware.
According to Sgt. Scott Selisker, the suspect attempted to defraud a Warminster bank in late June. The investigation led detectives to similar incidents that occurred in Bensalem and the larger tri-state area.
According to a release sent by the department, the suspect enters a car dealership and puts a $1,500 cash deposit on a vehicle. He returns the following day and indicates that he no longer wants the car.
The dealership then issues a check, which the suspect duplicates and cashes at various banks and check cashing establishments. The name used to conduct this scheme is actually a stolen identity. It is believed that the identification cards used are fraudulent.
Anyone having contact with the pictured suspect, please contact police immediately. If you have had previous contact and are able to identify him, please contact the Warminster Township Police at 215-443-5000.
