Last week Manchester Police responded to a call at US Bank. A bank employee told police that a person in a Toyota van was trying to cash a check on a closed account for $195 at the drive-thru window. The employee ask the female driver for an ID, which she did. The teller questioned the woman about the picture not looking like her and the teller ask the female to come into the bank to sort things out. The woman said she could not come in the bank because she had somewhere she needed to be and left the bank.
The female left the ID and the check with the teller. The ID belonged to a Carla Fowler from Franklin County.
Office Ernie Colvin made contact with Fowler and she stated that someone broke into her car and stole her pocketbook a couple of weeks ago. She stated that her child support card was in her purse and it was used in Tullahoma for a purchase of $140 on October 5. The manager and an employee of the store the purchase was made at confirmed through a picture that was taken from US Bank surveillance that the female trying to cash the check was the same person that made a purchase at their store.
Manchester Chief Investigator Billy Butler said in an email that this is an on-going investigation with the Franklin County Sheriff’s Office. Police have developed suspects in this case and plan to make an arrest or arrests in the not so distant future.
