ORANGE PARK, Fla. -- A female suspect is wanted for attempting to cash a stolen check at a Bank of America in Orange Park on November 26.

According to the Clay County Sheriff's Office, the suspect presented a Florida driver license along with a Bank of America debit card and check written out in the amount of $3300 to the victim.

Both the Bank of America card and license belonged to the victim whose purse was stolen from her vehicle in Jacksonville.

The check was written from the account of another victim whose purse was stolen on November 22 from her vehicle in Gainesville.

The bank manager asked the suspect to step over to his desk in an attempt to verify her identity but the suspect ran out the front door and fled the bank in black Dodge Avenger.

The manager was unable to identify the driver or get the tag number on the car.

Anyone with information regarding this incident or the suspect's identity should contact CCSO Detective Dugger at the Communications Center at 904-264-6512.

The victim's attempted forgery was prevented thanks to the bank manager's intervention.

Officials said this is not always the case when it comes to an auto burglary. Victims are victimized a second time when they realize that the criminal assessed their bank accounts.

Whenever a criminal breaks into a car and steal a purse, wallet or checkbook, they do so with a purpose in mind.

"Thieves may not be content with just the valuables contained in your car - they will try to empty your bank account, too."
