Chief David Scott reports the Pepperell Police Department is looking to identify a woman accused of stealing and forging checks in the area over the last three months.
The woman is believed to be stealing checks from residents in Pepperell, Dunstable and Westford. In each case, victims reported personal checks stolen from their mailbox and later noticed fraudulent activity on their banking accounts.
The woman is believed to have superimposed the victims’ check information on the bottom of a separate personal check with a fake name on it.
The woman made several fraudulent transactions in Fitchburg, Shrewsbury, Bedford, Lemoninster and Gardner, as well as Nashua, NH and Amherst, NH. She is believed to be driving a newer model Gray Toyota Highlander.
Anyone who can ID the female or has any additional information regarding the case is urged to contact the Pepperell Police Department at 978-433-2424.
