A Haughton man and a Shreveport woman have been arrested for allegedly writing thousands of dollars worth of counterfeit checks to purchase a number of items at several location.  

36-year old Dana Christopher of Haughton and 25-year-old Kami Cosby of Shreveport have been booked into Bossier Max on a variety of charges.  Investigators with the Bossier Financial Crimes Task Force say a two-month investigation has led them to conclude that Christopher and Cosby would fraudulently obtain checking account information from multiple victims, then produce counterfeit checks and purchase mostly high-dollar items.

Christopher and Cosby were booked on charges of racketeering and three counts of identity theft.  Christopher was also charged with possession of methamphetamine, possession of drug paraphernalia, and possession of a controlled dangerous substance in the presence of a minor.  A 4-year-old child who was in the car when Christopher and Cosby were stopped has been turned over to another family member.  Investigators also impounded a 2011 Jeep Patriot, a laptop computer, and financial documents.

These arrests are believed to have cleared seven cases of identity theft.  But investigators say anybody who feels like they’ve been the victim of identity theft should contact either the Bossier Sheriff’s Office at 965-2203 or the Bossier Police Department at 741-8611.
