Police Identify Suspect in Counterfeit Check Case
An Arizona man has been identified as the suspect in a recent check-cashing case in Alexandria.
The suspect in a recent counterfeit check-cashing case at United Bank was identified as Jay Michael Linford, 48, of Gilbert, Ariz.
A warrant has been issued for Linford on one count of uttering. He is also facing charges in Arizona on an unrelated case.
Earlier this week, the Alexandria Police Department said law enforcers were looking for an unidentified suspect who walked into the United Bank, located at 301 S. Washington St. on June 7 at 2:13 p.m., and cashed a counterfeit check from a Washington, D.C.-based company.
At approximately 3:17 p.m. the same day, the suspect went to a United Bank located at 2300 S. Ninth St. in Arlington County and attempted to cash a second check, but was denied by the teller. The suspect left the bank before police arrived.
In both cases, the suspect used a fake Maryland driver’s license. The suspect is described as a white male, in his 40s, approximately 5-foot-8 with a medium to heavy build. He was wearing a flannel shirt with dark jeans and brown shoes.
