Officers are looking for the public's help identifying forgery suspects, according to Johnathan Bragg of the Greenville Police Department.
The suspect approached victims, asked them for a ride and then told them he would give them gas money, according to Bragg.
Officers say the suspect would pay the victims with a check in an amount greater than the cost of gas. He would then ask the victim to withdraw money to make up the difference, Bragg said. This has happened on three different occasions, according to Bragg.
Officers said the checks were fake.
Officers ask that anyone with information is asked to call the Greenville Police Tip Line at 864-271-GCPD (4273) or Greenville Crime Stoppers at 864-23-CRIME.
