Dalton Police seek identity of suspects in fraud cases

Posted: Updated:

DALTON, GA (WRCB) -- The Dalton Police Department is asking for the public's help with identifying three people who cashed fraudulent payroll checks at an area grocery store using stolen or fake IDs.  The three individuals were each recorded on the store's surveillance system.

The incidents happened on April 1st and 2nd at the Bi-Lo store on Cleveland Highway in Dalton.  

On April 1st, the three suspects each cashed forged payroll checks that appeared to be printed from Global Building and Remodeling on Alliance National Bank checks.  The checks were later confirmed by the owner of that business to be fakes.  

The first suspect, a black female, identified herself as Kineshia Murdaugh of 525 S. Tibbs Road in Dalton and presented a driver's license number that turned not to be registered.  She cashed a check for $553.29.  

The second suspect, a black male, identified himself as Michael A. Holland, 134 Roosevelt Boulevard in Jackson, GA.  He presented a driver's license number that came back registered to another person in Buford.  He cashed a check for $510.38.  

The third suspect, another black male, identified himself as Lantavious Sims of 404 Park Street in LaFayette, GA.  He presented a driver's license that was apparently stolen.  He cashed a check for $579.37.

On April 2nd, the suspect who identified himself as Lantavious Sims returned to the Bi-Lo store and attempted to cash another payroll check.  This time, a store employee noticed that the suspect did not appear to match the picture on his driver's license.  After calling Global Building and Remodeling to confirm the check, the store called 911.  The suspect fled on foot before officers could respond to the scene.

Investigators believe that all three suspects gave false names.  

If anyone recognizes the suspects in these pictures or has any other information on this crime, they are asked to please contact Detective Brandon Carter at (706) 278-9085, extension 183.
