Counterfeit checks passed at bank

Allen County Sheriff's Department

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

The man went to a bank in the 1600 block of Gump Road, north of Fort Wayne, on June 21, cashing two checks that later turned out to be counterfeit, the sheriff's department said in a statement.

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.
