CAPTURED: WMW tips help ID, locate suspects caught on camera in ‘old school’ check fraud scam

CAPTURE UPDATE March 4, 2019 —
Fircrest Police say thanks to Washington’s Most Wanted viewer tips submitted to Crime Stoppers of Tacoma-Pierce County, detectives have identified the two fraud suspects as Christopher Parks and Eric Fisher.

“They are bad guys and we’re really glad to capture them,” said Fircrest Police Chief John Cheesman. “One was just going to get out of SCORE Jail, so we went up when he was getting out and re-arrested him and, of course, took him down to the Pierce County Jail. One of our other suspects is up in Shelton prison and obviously that’s not a good person, so he’s where he needs to be right now.”

A third suspect, Adrianna Wilcher, was also arrested and faces several charges of identity theft and forgery.

Parks and Fisher are WMW Captures #1075 and 1076.

FUGITIVES WANTED IN FIRCREST February 15, 2019 —
Do you recognize this guy seen mean-muggin’ a bank’s ATM camera or the second suspect Fircrest Police are hoping you can help identify?

“The suspects were depositing fraudulent checks into an account and before we could determine they were fraudulent checks, or the system could, they’re out trying to withdraw the money on bank machines and different locations like casinos,’ said Pierce County Sheriff’s Det. Ed Troyer. “When you do that we are going to have pictures and video of you and you will be put out to the public and we’ll find out who you are, so that is a ‘old school’ game that will get you caught and will get you thrown in jail. We know those checks were fraudulent. Whether they’re printing them, or they’re stealing them from businesses is still yet to be determined, the investigation’s ongoing, but we know that they willingly put all these checks in the bank, knowing they were going to withdraw the cash out later.”
A great shot from an ATM camera on January 4th shows the tattoos the bald-headed, mean-muggin’ suspect has inked on his hands.

If you recognize either of these fraud suspects, or the cars they drove, use the P3 Tips App on your smart phone to submit the information to Crime Stoppers, or call the hot line at 1-800-222-TIPS(8477). It’s anonymous and a cash reward of up to $1,000 is your tip helps lead to their arrest.
