Ponca City P olice need your help to identify the woman pictured here in a surveillance photograph taken at a self- checkout register at Wal-Mart.

On March 20 at approximately 1:20 p.m., this woman attempted to pay for more than $400 in merchandise with an altered personal check written on a closed account. A clerk approached the woman and asked for her license number, which the woman recited, but she did not provide her actual license.

The bank account number on the check had been altered and when it was run through the counter a second time, a portion of the alteration came loose. The woman was asked to remain at the store, but instead she exited quickly. The license number was apparently one she made up and the Social Security number she provided was not hers, but belonged to a man in Blackwell.
