Police seeks information on forger

Special to the Courier

The Woodland Park Police Department is looking for a woman who attempted to pass a forged check at a local bank.

On Oct. 29 a Colorado Springs resident placed his outgoing mail in his mailbox. At about 10:10 a.m. the victim was contacted by a neighbor who witnessed someone rifling through his mailbox. He checked the mailbox and noted that his CitiBank payment was missing. He called his bank in Woodland Park and placed a stop payment on the check.

While he was driving to his bank, a white adult female attempted to pass the check at his bank. The check had been washed and the “Pay to” line had been changed to the identity the suspect was using and the amount of the check had also been changed. The unknown female suspect presented a Colorado driver's license, believed to be stolen.

Our agency is attempting to confirm this information, which is based on the fact that the suspect's appearance differed from the driver's license photograph, there are differences in the physical descriptors and the signatures on the driver's license and the check were visibly not similar.

The bank teller assisting the suspect informed her that she needed to speak with her supervisor at which time the suspect immediately departed the bank, leaving behind the check and the driver's license. No suspect vehicle information was obtained by bank personnel.

Any assistance in identifying the suspect in connection with this case would be greatly appreciated. Please contact the investigating officer, Chris Moeller, Woodland Park Police Department at 719-687-9262 or at email cmoeller@city-woodlandpark.org with any information regarding this case. The case number is 12-1128.
