The Long Beach Police Department (LBPD) have released the photo of a person suspected to be responsible for multiple acts of fraud and are seeking the public’s help in possibly identifying the subject.
According to LBPD, the pictured subject—whose gender remains unidentified—has stolen some $47,000 in cash from various ATMs across the city. Having begun in September of 2011, the suspect deposits fraudulent checks into a victim’s account and then uses a stolen card to withdraw the funds before the check is cleared.

Anyone wishing to remain anonymous may call 1-800-222-TIPS (8477), or text TIPLA plus your tip to 274637 (CRIMES), or visit www.LACrimeStoppers.org.
