KINGSPORT, TN (WJHL) – The Kingsport Police Department says on September 27 around 10:30 a.m. someone deposited a check into another person’s account at the Eastman Credit Union branch located at 216 West Ravine Road in Kingsport.

Detectives say two minutes later, the same person withdrew $500 from the same account using the ATM outside the same branch.

Then, detectives say, later that day the same suspect took out another $200 from the same account using an ATM outside a different ECU branch in Kingsport.

As a result, the $700 check that was deposited to cover the withdrawals bounced due to the account being closed.

Police released a surveillance photo of the person in question.

If you recognize this man , call detectives at 423-229-9429 or call Kingsport Central Dispatch at 423-246-9111. Or you can leave a tip anonymously via online “Citizen Feedback” forms available at the following link: https://www.kingsporttn.gov/city-services/police-department/contact-us
