The Storm Lake Police Department is seeking the public's assistance in identifying several Hispanic males involved in an apparent fraud incident.
Early in the afternoon on Friday, officers were called to Delicias Bakery on North Lake Avenue after they received a report regarding a possible fraud check. The suspects fled the scene prior to the arrival of police. Officers allege that between ten and 15 Hispanic males presented payroll checks on a fictitious account. The suspects allegedly obtained nearly ten-thousand dollars in cash before they fled the scene in multiple vehicles. Police believe the suspects orchestrated the scheme throughout several areas in northwest Iowa on Friday.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Storm Lake Police Department at 712-732-8010, or 749-2525. Police encourage check cashing services to be vigilant in taking steps to ensure the validity of presented checks.
