Re: Counterfeit Checks
The Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Office is investigating a case involving a man who cashed a fictitious check at a local supermarket in Okeechobee County, Florida. On August 30, 2011, a black male subject entered the store and presented a check drawn on a local bank, made payable to him. The subject presented ID and the clerk cashed the check. The check was found to be a counterfeit check.
Approximately five minutes later, a black female walked into the same store and presented a similar check. The female did not have identification and the clerk refused to cash the check.
There have been multiple counterfeit checks across the state, to include Marion, Lake , Citrus and Martin counties.
Pictures of both subjects are below:
Anyone with information about the suspects are asked to call Detective Susan Morrison at the Okeechobee County Sheriff’s Office at (863)763-3117.
