Police seek man in bank surveillance photos

Middleton Police Department

MIDDLETON, Wis. -

Middleton police asked for help identifying a man investigators suspect fraudulently cashing checks at a local bank earlier this week.

Police said shortly before 1 p.m. on Monday, a man at State Bank of Cross Plains at 8301 University Ave. cashed checks that the account holder told police had gone missing a month ago.

Middleton Officer in Charge Sgt. Darrin Zimmerman said the account holder told police the checkbook was lost or stolen from his car.

Police released images from bank surveillance footage Saturday afternoon and asked anyone who can identify the man in the photos to call the department at 824-7300 or the agency’s tipster line at 824-7304.

The photos show a white man who looks to be in his 20s with a short facial hair wearing a brown flat cap, black hooded sweatshirt over a zip up with horizontal gray-and-black stripes.

Police did not release information about how much money was involved in the check transaction.
