Alert tellers at a bank in the first block of North Sandusky Street prevented the loss of $2,500 in an attempted identity theft, Delaware police said.
Someone tried to cash a check around 4:30 p.m. Feb. 8 at the bank, but the tellers were familiar with the person on the driver's license presented as identification, reports said. The license did not belong to the would-be check-casher, the tellers reported.
The license reportedly was stolen from a vehicle in Columbus; Delaware police are working to identify the suspect, reports said.
