Stolen checks ‘washed’ and then cashed in Central Texas
BRAZOS COUNTY, Texas (KWTX) – The Brazos County Sheriff’s Office has released a surveillance image of a woman wanted in a case involving stolen checks that have been “washed” and then cashed in the Harker Heights area.
The image was recorded by an ATM surveillance camera in Harker Heights.
“Washing” checks involves using chemicals to remove ink and then changing the name of the person to whom the check was written and often the dollar amount, as well.
