‘Wig Wearing Criminal’ uses stolen checks at another Jersey Shore bank
A woman Toms River Police describe as a "Wig Wearing Criminal" has tried using stolen checks at yet another Jersey Shore bank.
Toms River police say the woman who allegedly stole check books at Riverwood Park last month has been using the checks at banks across the shore.
The latest took place at Manasquan Bank in Howell Township who contacted Toms River Police saying they spotted the woman pictured in prior surveillance images.
She allegedly tried cashing stolen checks at two of the branches in Howell and committed the same crimes at banks in Wall Township recently.
Toms River Police say the woman pictured is believed to be an accomplice of a well-organized group that travels the state committing crimes.
"A mainstay of their criminal enterprise is breaking into vehicles in public parking lots to remove purses that are readily visible," Toms River Police Spokesman Ralph Stocco said. "They then use accomplices to make purchases with stolen credit cards as well as to commit bank fraud."
The public is reminded that criminal charges are accusations only. Every criminal defendant is presumed innocent unless and until proven guilty in court.
