McCALL, Idaho -- Police in McCall are asking for the public's help in identifying two men who went to the Paul's Market in McCall on July 22 and passed a counterfeit payroll check. Both men posed as employees of a local business.

The suspects were caught on surveillance camera video and police released several photos to the media Wednesday.

The first suspect is a white male, around 5-foot-8 to 5-foot-11, with brown hair and a slender build. He was wearing a dark blue or black long sleeve shirt, shorts and a dark blue baseball cap that had a white front with multiple colored letters.

The second suspect is a white male, around 5-foot-8 to 5-foot-11 with brown hair and a heavier build. He was wearing a white T-shirt that has very distinct blue “vine” type pattern on the left side.  The right side of the shirt has vertical lettering. He wore a straw cowboy hat and white or light gray sunglasses.  And he has extensive sleeve tattoos on both his right and left arms.

Investigators say the suspects are driving a light brown or gold colored SUV, possibly a Suburban, Tahoe, or Yukon.

This is not the first time they have committed this crime. The suspects also passed counterfeit checks in Weiser, Homedale, and Marsing.  At each location they were seen wearing the same clothing and posing as employees of local businesses.

Any with information about the suspects or their whereabouts is urged to call the McCall Police Department at 208-634-7144.  You can remain anonymous.
