Stolen checks cashed at three local banks

The Nicholasville Police Department is asking for help from the community in identifying two female suspects who recently passed three stolen checks at banks in Nicholasville and Wilmore.

The two suspects went through the drive-thrus at the Bellchase, Brannon Road and Wilmore branches of Farmers Bank on March 9.

The women presented and cashed checks that were later reported stolen. They obtained thousands of dollars from the same individual’s account using an I.D. that was stolen from another vehicle.

The suspects are believed to have been driving a newer model Ford Escape with tinted windows.

Anyone with information on this case is asked to call the Nicholasville Police Department at 859-885-9468.
