NEWS RELEASE
SUBJECT: K.P.D. Detectives Seeking Suspect in Counterfeit Check Cashing Cases
DATE: June 8, 2018
CASE #: 18-013334 (First Community Bank)

18-015369 (Citizens Bank Downtown)

18-015383 (Citizens Bank Colonial Heights)

GENERAL NARRATIVE
Over the past few weeks, the same white male suspect has feloniously cashed three counterfeit checks, fraudulently obtaining over $5,000, from three Kingsport bank locations.

Each of the checks was written out to a different name; however, the suspect used what is believed to be three separate fake North Carolina driver licenses to identify himself as the person to whom each check was written. This same suspect is also being investigated in a similar counterfeit check cashing case in a neighboring jurisdiction.

An array of photos of this individual, taken from surveillance video footage, has been included in this release. Anyone who recognizes him, or who may have any additional information which could help solve this case, is asked to contact Detectives in the K.P.D. Criminal Investigations Division at 423-229-9429 or call Kingsport Central Dispatch at 423-246-9111.

Alternatively, if an individual who is able to supply information related to this or any other case wishes not to be identified, tips can be submitted anonymously via online “Citizen Feedback” forms available at the following link:
