The Kitsap County Sheriff’s Office is requesting the assistance of local residents in identifying the person depicted in the accompanying photograph, taken from bank surveillance cameras.

According to the sheriff’s office, the suspect forged several checks totaling nearly $11,000 from July 29 to 31 of last year at several Bank of America branches throughout the Kitsap County and the surrounding areas, including Port Orchard, Silverdale, Bremerton and Gig Harbor.

The suspect cashed the checks using fraudulent identification with the victim’s name and checking account number.

The suspect is described as a dark-skinned male, 30-35 years of age, of unknown race with long, dark hair which appears to be pulled back and is thinning on top.

He is of average height, has a heavy build and wears a goatee. He is left-handed.

Anyone who can identify this person, or who has information about him or the forgeries, is asked to contact Sheriff’s Detective Tim Keeler at (360) 337-4825.
