From staff reports

The Kootenai County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the public’s help in identifying women suspected of passing stolen checks.

One woman is suspected of stealing checks from mailboxes in the Hauser Lake area and has been attempting to pass them at various bank locations in Kootenai County, according to a sheriff’s news release.

Deputies believe the woman is traveling with an unknown male in a red, four-door Toyota with Oregon license plates, which appear to read 793JAY.

A photo released by the sheriff’s office of the woman shows her with blonde hair in a ponytail, wearing a gray jacket and a black undershirt.

Deputies are also seeking help in identifying another woman who tried to cash a fraudulent check in a Bank of America branch on Henry Street in Post Falls on Wednesday. She is described as a heavyset white female with red hair, according to the news release.

People with information are asked to call a sheriff’s detective at (208) 446-1367.
