Temple Police Release Photo of Forgery Suspect
Temple Police Department investigators are asking for the public's help identifying a forgery suspect.
According to TPD's Chris Christoff, officers met with the victim on December 12, 2019. The victim claimed that an unknown person deposited a number of fraudulent checks totaling around $3,000 into their bank account using an ATM near West Adams Avenue. The suspect is believed to have then cashed the checks by hacking into the victim's PayPal account.
It's difficult to make out the suspect's features in the surveillance still released today, but police are hoping someone will be able to either identify him or provide more information about the case. The suspect was last seen in a dark colored, 4-door Kia sedan. Police do not know the vehicles's license plate number.
