Posted February 25, 2014
Hope Mills, N.C. — Cumberland County deputies are looking for the “Check Washing Bandit.”
A woman entered the First South Bank in Hope Mills on Feb. 18 and attempted to fraudulently cash a $6,436 check.
A veteran clerk at the bank became suspicious. She knew the client didn’t write personal checks from his business account, investigators said.
The suspect used an identification card that was reported stolen from a local Walmart.
The suspect is described as a white female with long brown hair (she wears it pulled back from her face), weighs approximately 170 pounds and is of average height.
Anyone with information regarding the suspect’s identity or whereabouts is asked to contact the Cumberland County Sheriff’s Office at 910-323-1500.
