JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – Police told Region 8 News they are searching for a woman suspected of stealing checks from a Jonesboro man and using them at the Walmart on Highland.

Officer Blake Miller with the Jonesboro Police Department was dispatched to the Centennial Bank on Highland Saturday morning around 10 a.m. in reference to stolen checks.

The victim, RL McGinnis, received a letter in the mail on Friday saying that his bank account was overdrawn due to three checks that were used at the Highland Walmart, totaling $151.

McGinnis told officer Miller that a black female, who he knew only as Velencia, had cleaned his apartment on December 17, and suspected that she could have stolen the checks.

He tried to contact the woman at her apartment, but she wasn't there. He also called her brother, but could not get an answer.

Officer Miller found out that an Arkansas driver's license number was used on all three checks. That number was traced back to a black female out of Wynne.

The suspect would be charged with a felony for forgery and a misdemeanor for theft of $1,000 or less. 

McGinnis was advised to contact the police department if he heard from the woman, but at this time they still have not heard from McGinnis.
