NEWS RELEASE
SUBJECT: Detectives Asking for Assistance in Identifying Suspect Cashing Counterfeit Checks
DATE: June 27, 2014
GENERAL NARRATIVE
On May 21, 2014 at approximately 7:45 PM, a white female suspect cashed what was believed to be a Big Lots payroll check for $298.00 at Food City, located at 1205 North Eastman Road in Kingsport. Moments later at 8:00 PM, the same individual cashed a second apparent Big Lots payroll check for $397.67 at Food City, located at 300 Clinchfield Street in Kingsport.

Continuing this pattern, the same individual cashed another one of these Big Lots payroll checks the next day on May 22, 2014 at Food Country, located at 2850 Highway 394 in Bristol, TN. All of these checks have since been determined to be counterfeit. These first two incidents are being investigated by the Kingsport Police Department with the last one being investigated by the Bristol, TN Police Department.

The checks were written to and endorsed with the name Jessica White; however, this is most likely an alias. A photo of the suspect captured on surveillance video is included in this release. The actual video footage has been made available for viewing on the K.P.D. YouTube channel via the link below.
