MONROE - The Monroe Police Department is seeking public assistance in identifying an unknown man who is suspected of fraudulently obtaining a check from a Monroe bar by falsely claiming to represent a club on Nov. 30.

Monroe police detective Larry Keegan said the suspect, a heavyset white man wearing a gray sweatshirt and a white baseball cap, was photographed by a security camera shortly after leaving Bartels & Co. Tap in Monroe on Nov. 30.

Keegan said the suspect claimed to represent the Monroe Curling Club and was seeking donations. With this claim, he was successful in obtaining a check from the pub's management.

The suspect later appeared at Bullet's Restaurant, where he exchanged the check for cash.

Keegan said the department had received unconfirmed information that the suspect may have been seen around Mount Horeb within the past week.

Anyone with information on the case can contact Keegan at (608) 329-2401.
