Forgery Suspect Cashes $30,000 in Checks

Police circulate a photo of a woman they say forged signatures on checks cashed this spring.

Authorities sought the public's help Thursday identifying a woman they say has forged and cashed $30,000 in checks.

The woman is in her late 20s, black, with long, straight hair and dark eyes, police said.

"Between February and May of 2012, the suspect has been seen entering several financial institutions, where she then produces a counterfeit check with the forged signature of the victim to be cashed," Santa Monica Police Sgt. Richard Lewis said in a statement.

Anyone with information was asked to contact detective Robert D'Andrea at (310) 458-2201 ext. 6679, Sgt. Henry Ramirez at (310) 458-8453 or the Santa Monica Police Department's 24/7 line at (310) 458-8495.

Surprised that with the pic, if she has any Fed or State ID with a pic- they have software to narrow it down in seconds- if the SM police don't - they can use the FBI equipment-
