PROVIDENCE, R.I. (WPRI) — Rhode Island State Police have identified a suspect wanted for allegedly trying to cash fraudulent checks from a local non-profit organization at the Stop and Shop supermarket on Branch Avenue on January 3 about 5 p.m.

This case was featured on the Rhode Island’s Most Wanted website and reported on Eyewitness News and on WPRI.com. State police have since determined that surveillance photos accompanying that story showed a woman who was not involved in any way with this or any other state police investigation. However, police have identified a suspect in the fraudulent check case and the investigation is continuing.
