Suspect sought for bank fraud in Bailey's Crossroads

Suspect on bank camera.

Fairfax County Crime Solvers is offering a reward of $100 to $1,000 for tips leading to an arrest and indictment of a suspect wanted for bank fraud.

Last winter, a man opened a business account at the SunTrust Bank at 5821 Crossroads Circle in Bailey’s Crossroads and deposited a check in the new account. He later withdrew money from the account several times before the bank determined the check was counterfeit. The loss to the bank was more than $30,000.

A bank surveillance photo caught the man making the deposit on Jan. 13 at around 2:40 p.m. The bank waited several months before reporting the incident to the police and the police began an investigation Sept. 22.

The suspect presented a fraudulent driver’s license from Tennessee when he opened the account. Detectives believe this case may be linked to fraud cases in other jurisdictions and that other suspects might be involved.

Anyone with information is encouraged to contact Crime Solvers, 866-411-TIPS/8477, text “TIP187” plus your message to CRIMES/274637, or call Fairfax County Police, 703-691-2131.

  1. Since when does a bank honor a deposit with cash out before the check clears the federal reserve? And then hide the fact for 9 months? This story doesn't make much sense.
