Police: Fraud and identity theft suspect on run with thousands in cash

- Atlanta Police are looking for a man accused of impersonating people and withdrawing more than $100,000 in cash from local banks, FOX 5 News has learned.

Investigators said the man, who they are trying to identify, has at least four victims, in areas from Sandy Springs to Columbus, Georgia. They believe his crime spree started in the fall of 2018 and there could be more victims. 

Sgt. Paul Cooper with the department's Major Fraud Unit spoke with FOX 5's Marissa Mitchell Thursday. He said the man makes identification cards with people's personal information and places his own picture on the card. He then goes to a bank, with the victim's account information, and withdraws money from their accounts, Cooper added. All of the victims resemble the suspect. And Cooper told Mitchell the suspect has carried out his schemes at SunTrust Bank locations.

The unidentified suspect faces multiple charges, including fraud and identity theft. Anyone with information in the case is asked to contact Crime Stoppers Atlanta at 404-577- 8477. There is a cash reward for any information that leads to an arrest and indictment in the case.
