Hollis Police seek help IDing woman suspected in check fraud

HOLLIS – Police are looking for help identifying a woman they say stole several checks from a vehicle in Massachusetts and cashed some of them.

Hollis police were contacted by police in Weston, Mass., on Sept. 30 after someone tried to cash a check at the Bank of America in Hollis using a check, ID and credit cards that had been stolen from a car in Weston, police said.

The check was made out for more than $1,000 but the bank employee suspected fraud and refused to cash it. The same woman is suspected in similar incidents in Nashua, Bedford and Manchester, Hollis police said.

Hollis Lt. Rich Mello said she was successful at some of the banks and cashed checks worth “thousands.”

The woman is described as being a white female in her early 30s with dirty blonde hair, wearing glasses. She has been seen driving what appeared to be a newer model Dodge Grand Caravan or Chrysler Town and Country, possibly with temporary plates, police said.

Anyone with information is asked to call Hollis police at 465-7637.
