On Thursday, July 26th, 2012 at approximately 2018 hours, officers responded to Hiway Fruit,
200 block of Yakima Valley Hwy., reference two adult females attempting to cash a Walmart
Distribution Center counterfeit payroll check. After the cashier recognized the check was
counterfeit and called police, the females fled the store in a green Acura.
Responding officers located and stopped the suspect vehicle leaving the area where an adult
male driver and described adult females were detained for investigation of forgery. Upon further
investigation, the adult females had just previously cashed two counterfeit checks at Fiesta
Foods and were attempting to cash a third check before being arrested.
The arrested subjects are from the Sea-Tac area and targeting the Yakima and Benton County
areas. The three suspects are being held on investigation of forgery. If anyone has received
any counterfeit Walmart Distribution Center payroll checks or has additional information, please
contact the Sunnyside Police Department at (509) 836-6200.
