AMELIA, LA (WAFB) - Authorities are looking for a man who cashed a fake check at a convenience store.

The St. Mary Parish Sheriff's Office reported it received a complaint on July 25 from a store in Amelia about a counterfeit check that was cashed.

It is unknown how much cash the suspect got away with because of the fake check.

The suspect was caught on surveillance video taken inside the store, so investigators are asking for the public's help in identifying him.

Deputies said they are looking for a Hispanic man who was driving a newer model, dark-colored minivan. They added there was a white woman in the van with him.

Anyone with information on the man, the woman or the minivan is asked to call SMPSO at 985-384-1622 or 337-828-1960.
