Fresno County Sheriff’s deputies want to quickly catch a woman who allegedly cashed a $12,000 check belonging to a 103-year-old man.

The woman’s identity isn’t known, but a video camera at the Liquor King Store near Herndon and Blackstone avenues got a good shot of her.

According to the sheriff’s office, a tattoo on her upper right arm appears to be a tribal marking.

” Now, if you are asking yourself why a liquor store would cash a $12,000 check, we are wondering the same thing,” said sheriff’s spokesman Tony Botti in a news release. “Nevertheless, the money is gone and we just want to hold someone accountable for this crime.”

Anyone who can help identify the person in the photo is asked to please contact the Sheriff’s Office at (559) 600-3111 or Valley Crime Stoppers at (559) 498-7867,
