SAVANNAH, GA. (February 11, 2014): Southside Precinct detectives from the Savannah-Chatham Metropolitan Police Department are trying to identify a woman who cashed a check taken from one victim’s parked vehicle and withdrew money from another victim’s bank account.
The woman represented herself as someone else to cash a stolen and forged check, then withdrew money from the account of the woman she professed to be.
The checkbook had been left in a purse inside a locked car parked at a business on West Montgomery Cross Road last Tuesday. When the owner returned shortly after, she found a window broken out and her purse removed.
Her credit union advised her that someone had cashed the check at a bank in town. The bank also discovered the theft from the second victim’s account when police investigated.
Anyone with information on the identity and/or location of the suspect is asked to call Southside Precinct detectives at (912) 351-3400 or Crimestoppers at (912) 234-2020 or text CRIMES (274637) using the keyword CSTOP2020. Tipsters to Crimestoppers remain anonymous and may qualify for a cash reward.
