Identity Theft Suspects
The Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office is requesting the media’s assistance in identifying the suspects from the photo attached to the press release.
Starting in September 2011 through December 2011 these suspects have obtained multiple Tennessee-issued ID’s using falsified documents as well as actual personal information from people. The suspects then use the fake ID’s to cash counterfeit payroll checks at different Bi Lo and Piggly Wiggly stores throughout the state of Tennessee.
Currently in the Hamilton County area these individuals have obtained through using the fake ID’s approximately $10,000 cash. They have also been active in Tullahoma, Shelbyville, East Ridge, Clarksville, Springfield and Athens, Tennessee. Law Enforcement, as well as merchants from the different jurisdictions are working together to pursue and identify these individuals.
The investigators are requesting anyone with information regarding the identity or a possible location on these subjects are being requested to contact their local law enforcement agency and/or the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Division at 423-209-8940 or the Sheriff’s dispatcher 423-622-0022.
