FORT WAYNE – The Allen County Sheriff's Department is asking for the public's help in identifying a faked-checks suspect.

He cashed a check and then left. Less than an hour later, the suspect returned to the same bank and cashed another check.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call 449-7431.
