FLEMING COUNTY, Ky. (WKYT)- UPDATE:
The Fleming County Sheriff's Office has identified the suspect in the surveillance video as Bobby Wayne Brewer.

Deputies said within five minutes of our story airing on WKYT, police in Jackson, Kentucky received a call from Brewer's former mother-in-law who told them she just saw Brewer on the news, in reference to surveillance images in the story.

The Fleming County Sheriff's Office said Brewer currently has several active warrants for his arrest out of other counties for similar crimes where he's scammed people using forged checks and money orders.

Police are searching for a man accused of passing fraudulent checks in Eastern Kentucky.

One business that received a bad check caught the suspect on surveillance.
The man suspected of fraud went to the store, A Day to Remember, last Wednesday and wrote a check for $165.

The sheriff's office said it was FirstData EFS Transcheck, common with semi-truck drivers, but the transaction number, issuer number, and telephone number on the check all appear to be fraudulent, and the bank will not honor the check.

This suspect has passed similar fraudulent checks to at least two other businesses in Fleming County, Grime's Greenhouse and The Pickett Fence.

The surveillance images from A Day to Remember show the man clearly inside the store and his car outside.

Sheriffs deputies say the suspect is a white man, with dark brown hair and a brown/gray goatee. He is 6 feet tall and around 235 pounds.

He was last seen wearing a gray polo and blue jean shorts and black tennis shoes, and had a large black tattoo the length of his left lower leg and possibly another tattoo on his left shoulder.

The car he was driving appears to be a newer model Chrysler 200 four door sedan, gray in color, with a handicap placard on the rear view mirror and possibly a Kentucky license plate.
