Check cashing scheme suspect being sought by Texarkana Texas Police.
This week’s Felony Friday features Kimberlie Hawthorne, who has a felony warrant for Theft. Hawthorne is wanted on a check cashing scheme in February.
Police allege that Hawthorne opened an account at one bank. She then allegedly made several deposits using checks from her old business account at another bank that she had previously closed.
Authorities say it was always at different branches and with different tellers. They say the bank figured out that the checks were worthless. However, Hawthorne had already made purchases on her debit card. Police say she also made ATM withdrawals totaling over $4,500.
If you have any information on this crime, or the whereabouts of Kimberlie Hawthorne, you are asked to call Texarkana Texas Police at 903-798-3116.
