?    A young man with red hair is being sought by the Scott County Sheriff’s Department as the main suspect in a forgery/receiving stolen property case after he allegedly cashed stolen checks at a Scottsburg gas station.
    In talking to the station clerk who had accepted the checks from the suspect, Reserve Deputy Sheriff Bobby Thompson said the clerk noted that the red-haired man offered two checks in the amount of $200 and $375. Both were drawn on another man’s bank account and were reportedly signed by that party. Both were made out to what appeared to be a woman with the first name of Priscilla.
    However, the young man cashing the checks offered identification listing him as Priscilla. The driver license the young man had, the clerk recalled, had the young man’s photo on it. The clerk remembered the incident because, as he told his customer,  “Priscilla was an unusual name for a male.”
    The investigation of the two checks occurred in September by the Sheriff’s Department and  revealed that a woman whose first name was Priscilla had had her purse stolen from her car around the end of August. The purse contained her driver license and credit cards.
    On November 13, a local bank called, reporting that a teller had been approached by a young man with red hair who wanted to cash a check from a couple’s account. Becoming suspicious, the teller called the woman listed on the check, and learned it was a stolen check. She returned to the young man and asked for identification. Instead, the young man fled the bank, leaving the check behind.
    A warrant for a suspect has been issued based on three counts of Class C forgery and three counts of Class D receiving stolen property, all filed in Scott Circuit Court on December 23.
