Neosho police are investigating two cases of fraud reported Monday.
Officers were alerted at 10:29 a.m. of a bad check that was written to acquire two kayaks from Orscheln Farm & Home, 840 West Harmony Street.
“We don’t know if it was counterfeit or if it was forged,” Lt. Jason Baird said.
The loss is $878 and he said the investigation continues.
Police do know that it was counterfeit…and they know who passed a phony $100 bill at Wildcat Corner, 817 South Neosho Boulevard.
Officers responded at 5:51 p.m. Monday, and Baird said the suspect will be arrested when located by officers.
Police also know who got away with $40 in ball cards from Walmart after being summoned to the 3200 Lusk Drive Store at 5:21 p.m.
“They got it on video,” Baird said. “We’ll follow up to make an arrest. We know who he is.”
Officers were dispatched to the Lime Kiln Access at 8:47 a.m. when Baird said damage was reported to the fence gate at the well for city water.
“The gate was pulled down by a chain hooked to a truck,” he said of the damage.
