Edmond Police spokeswoman Glynda Chu said the burglary happened in Oklahoma City, so Edmond is handling the stolen checks cashed at the Lowe’s at 1320 E. Second St. The victim, a college student, told police two checks were stolen from her Oklahoma City apartment, along with a television and a diamond ring, and they were used at about 5:40 p.m. on Feb. 12 at the Edmond Lowe’s, according to a report filed by Edmond Police Officer Brad Griffin. Police said the suspect used one of the checks to buy $429.92 worth of items. Shortly after the first transaction, a second check was used to buy $410.82 at the same store. The handwriting on both checks appears to be from the same suspect, police said. Police described the suspect as being a black male who drives a dark-colored, possibly black, Chevrolet Tahoe. Anyone with information about this incident is asked to call Edmond Crime Stoppers at <a>359-4466</a>. Callers may remain anonymous.
