Pine Bluff police are attempting to locate a woman who tried to cash a stolen check Tuesday afternoon at a Simmons Bank branch.


According to a police report, the woman, a white female driving tan new model Ford Escape, came to the drive-through window at the branch at 2618 W. 28th Ave. and presented a check made out in the name of Emily Williams for $1,975.37, along with a Simmons debit card and an Arkansas driver’s license with the name Emily Williams on it.


A teller received notification by computer that Williams had reported her purse stolen and, according to a press release from Sgt. David De Foor, the debit card and driver’s license were stolen in Bryant. The check was also reportedly stolen in Bryant in a separate incident.


The police report said bank employees attempted to ask the unidentified female security questions and, according to the report, the unknown female could not answer the questions. She also reportedly had combed her hair over her face in an attempt to conceal her identity.


The unknown female left the bank when she saw an employee on the phone, the report said.


The check was a Regions Bank check from the account of Rhonda Simpson.


Anyone with information about the suspect is asked to contact the Detective Division at 730-2090 or the dispatch center at 541-5300. All calls will be kept confidential.
