The Bossier Financial Crimes Task Force is asking for the public’s help in identifying a man who passed more than $3000 in bogus bills at the Walmart in the 2500 block of Airline Drive.
On two occasions last year the suspect purchased two Moneypak prepaid cards - one for $1500 and the other for $1700 - with $20 bills that turned out to be counterfeit.
Detectives have made one arrest in the case.
Dollie Lenette Williams, 22, of Shreveport was the cashier who rang up both purchases. An investigation showed she was allegedly involved in the scam and was arrested in November on a charge of monetary instrument abuse. She hasn’t been cooperative with detectives in providing information about the male suspect who is seen on security camera video entering and leaving the Walmart.
He’s described as a black male wearing a gray shirt with “Sean John” on the frontand black or navy sweat pants along with white and black tennis shoes. One video shows him in possession of a red mobile phone.
Anyone with information about this suspect is asked to call Bossier Crime Stoppers at (318) 424-4100. They can also submit a web tip via the Bossier Crime Stoppers website - www.bossiercrimestoppers.org. Persons who contact Crime Stoppers are reminded they may remain totally anonymous and could be eligible for a cash reward if their information leads to an arrest.
The Bossier Financial Crimes Task Force is composed of white collar crime investigators with the Bossier City Police Department and Bossier Parish Sheriff’s Office. Bossier City Chief of Police Shane McWilliams and Bossier Parish Sheriff Julian Whittington formed the task force by combining resources from both agencies to combat crimes such as identity theft, fraud and embezzlement with the city and parish.
