CLARENCE, Iowa (KWQC) — Police are asking the public for help to identify a person who is suspected of passing bad checks.

On December 25, Sundstop convenience store in Clarence reported a check was written for $205 to purchase three cartons of cigarettes. Sundstop reported a second check was written on the same account also on Christmas Day at the Olin, Iowa location for $147.77, also to purchase cartons of cigarettes.

Police say the checks were returned because the account was closed. They say the person whose checking account the checks were written on was a resident of Lowden, Iowa who had died some time ago.

Video from Sundstop shows the same person passing both checks. At the Clarence location it is believed he left in a minivan that he was a passenger of. The photos are from the Olin and Clarence Sundstop security cameras showing the person who passed the checks. The image of the van is from the Clarence Sundstop.
