Murfreesboro, TN – On Wednesday, Murfreesboro Police Public Information Officer Larry Flowers confirmed that an arrest has yet to be made in a recent attempted bank fraud case. Flowers previously told WGNS that a man from Florida contacted the Police Department after an unknown subject allegedly went to a Murfreesboro bank and attempted to cash a large check using a driver's license from Florida, that was complete with the victim’s signature. However, that victim has never been to Murfreesboro and was unsure who may have been using his identity.

Local authorities say they confirmed the Florida victim was contacted by Truist Bank on Old Fort Parkway, who told the victim about the incident. The check that the unidentified male allegedly tried to cash was for $5,500. The subject was captured on security cameras inside the bank, but he has not been physically apprehended.


The MPD reported, “The unidentified man also presented the bank teller with the Florida man's social security number.” Detectives are working this stolen identity case that is also a case involving attempted bank fraud. Police say, “The unknown man has attempted to cash fraudulent checks at banks in Johnson City, Kingsport and Hixon, Tennessee."

Can You Help Police? Detectives ask, “If you know who this person is, please contact Det. Ray Daniel at 629-201-5512 or email 0409@murfreesborotn.gov.”
