Crime Stoppers and investigators with the Harris County Sheriff's Office Financial Crime Division need the public's help identifying a suspect who stole a victim's identity and committed forgery at multiple Houston area banks.

The 71-year-old victim told sheriff's deputies and investigators that on August 15, he attended a professional football game. The next day he realized he was missing his wallet which contained several bank cards, identification cards and a concealed handgun license.

After a review of the victim's accounts, it was discovered that the suspect had made numerous transactions totaling over $20,000. Investigators were able to obtain surveillance video from a bank. The video shows the suspect using a counterfeit check four times on August 16.

The suspect in the case is described as a black male, 50-60 years of age, medium build, with a black and gray beard, and wearing glasses.

Anyone with information about the identity of the suspect is asked to contact Crime Stoppers of Houston at 713-222-TIPS (8477).
