Man suspected in fraud case strikes again, police say | Business
Photos depict man in similar glasses, black-and-gray shirt
Police believe a man suspected in a Jan. 28 fraud case in Middleton struck again on the west side of Madison weeks later.
The Middleton Police Department released eight photos from surveillance video taken just before 1 p.m. Thursday. The photos show a white man wearing glasses and a blue ball cap at the counter of Anchor Bank on Raymond Road. The suspect is pictured wearing a khaki jacket over a gray, hooded zip-up sweatshirt, blue jeans and black shoes.
Middleton police Sgt. Troy Hellenbrand said the man pictured attempted to cash checks, but the bank employees suspected he was not the individual on the checks and did not complete the transaction. Hellenbrand said the suspect left without money.
In the Jan. 28 incident at State Bank of Cross Plains on University Avenue, police said the individual was successful in fraudulently cashing checks, which the victim told police were stolen from his car.
Photos in both instances clearly depict the suspect’s face and figure in color.
“The photos are excellent,” Hellenbrand said. “We’re just waiting for the right tipster to call [and identify the man].”
Hellenbrand said the two incidents are separate cases with separate victims and the man pictured is suspected of multiple other fraud and attempted fraud incidents in Dane County.
Anyone with information about the identity of the man pictured is asked to call Middleton police at 608-824-7300 or the tipster line at 608-824-7304.
In photos from both incidents, it appears the man is wearing the same black and gray zip-up shirt and glasses.
