Crime Stoppers and the Benton County Sheriff’s department have joined an investigation with other agencies to find this guy. He’s accused of using a checkbook stolen from a Benton City resident to pay for a lot of stuff around the area.

Kennewick police say the male suspect allegedly used the stolen checkbook to forge checks written at JC Penney on February 4, and Walmart on February 6. The amounts were not disclosed.

Authorities didn’t say if they believe he stole it, but want to at least know how he wound up with it.

He is seen on surveillance camera footage, and also a picture of the suspect’s vehicle is seen below.  Anyone with any information is asked to call the Benton County Tips hotline at (509)-222-3763.  Use the case number 17-01973 when reporting any leads.
