Santa Clarita Valley Sheriff’s Station deputies are seeking a suspect in connection with fraud and forgery charges in the case of a Santa Clarita man who had debit card, checks and other financial information taken from his mailbox. The theft was reported in February, and Sheriff’s Station officials are asking for the public’s help in identifying a person of interest in the reported crimes. The suspect reportedly forged and deposited checks into his bank account using an ATM and the victim’s stolen debit card. Once the checks were deposited, the suspect would then reportedly withdraw cash via an ATM prior to the forged checks being returned as insufficient funds.
