Durham Police Trying To Identify Fraud Suspects

Posted Updated

DURHAM, N.C. — Durham police investigators are trying to identify a trio of fraud suspects who cashed more than $7,000 worth of counterfeit checks during a two-day spree in Durham, Raleigh, Smithfield, Lumberton and Wilson.

The checks were made up to look like paychecks from a local business. The checks were all cashed at BB&T banks on May 3 and May 4, 2001.

The suspects used the names Linva Byrd, Raymond Johnson and Samuel Graham. But investigators do not believe those are their real names.

Anyone who has information or who can identify the pictures is asked to call investigator A.L. Jackson at

560-4440, ext. 232,
