ALBANY — The Criminal Investigations Bureau of the Albany Police Department is asking for help in identifying the woman who is a person of interest in two forgery incidents earlier this week, officials say.

According to police, the woman was driving a late model Chevrolet Impala with two decals on the back — one depicting a “stick-figure family” and the other the cartoon character Betty Boop.

The vehicle may have a Maryland license plate, officials say, but the vehicle has been stolen and its tag may have been replaced.

Investigators say the woman, a photo of whom was taken at a drive-through, used false identification to cash bogus checks that may be linked to several cases of entering autos.

Anyone with information regarding the woman or the vehicle is asked to contact the Albany Police Department at (229) 431-2100 or Crime Stoppers at (229) 436-TIPS (8477). Reports to Crime Stoppers may be made anonymously and could result in a monetary reward.
