Edmonton, Alberta – The Edmonton Police Service is seeking the public’s assistance identifying two suspects in relation to cheque frauds totaling more than $250,000.
Between December 2020 and February 2021, police received several reports that a female and a male attended various Edmonton financial institutions to cash fraudulent cheques. In each case, the suspects presented cheques that were stolen or fraudulently produced and collected cash amounts between $35,000 and $100,000. The financial institutions were located citywide and an estimated $250,000 has been defrauded to date.
Using CCTV footage, investigators have confirmed that all five reported frauds were committed by the same individuals, who they continue to try and identify. Police are releasing several of these images in the hopes that someone may recognize the pair and come forward to police.
The female is described as white, 35 to 40-years-old, 5’6” tall and approximately 165 lbs. She reportedly changes her hair frequently, possibly using wigs, and is known to use the false names Stephanie Marie Johnson, Vanessa Whitney Mayfield, Charlotte M Henderson, Brittany T Carter and Melodie Ashley Carrington.
The male is described as Black, 35 to 40 years-old, 5’8” tall and 150 lbs. He also reportedly changes his hair frequently and has a noticeable tattoo on his left hand.
