BATON ROUGE – Authorities are looking for a man that stole money from a Baton Rouge bank using a hot check scam this past October.

The East Baton Rouge Parish Sheriff’s Office was contacted Nov. 15 by MidSouth Bank and told about the scam.

The bank said a man had opened an account on Oct. 4 using a fake identity, then deposited four checks totaling almost $3,000 into it over the next two days.  The bank said the checks bounced several days later, but before then the man had made several withdrawals from MidSouth ATMs.

The sheriff’s office got photos of the man from the ATMs he visited, and are hoping someone will be able to help them identify him.

If you have any information about this scammer’s identity, call EBRSO at (225) 389-5000.
