Trucker Scam

Detectives are searching for a man who is allegedly walking into banks and taking thousands of dollars illegally--- without a gun.

Officials say the man is using 'Comchecks' which are Comdata credit cards or checks used by truckers.

Comchecks can be used for advances and other compensation. But police believe the suspect is using them for personal gain by passing bad Comchecks across the Commonwealth.

Law enforcement has dozens of surveillance pictures of the man. He's already escaped with around $50,000 from banks in the Bluegrass.

Detectives have no idea who the man is, but say he may be in the trucking business.
