RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - Tonight's featured fugitive is wanted by the Dinwiddie County Sheriff's Office for obtaining money by false pretenses and larceny that began back in 2006.

Police say Samuel Lorenzo Davis, Jr., began defrauding Dinwiddie businesses back in May of 2006 by cashing a series of counterfeit checks. Using legitimate business names and payroll style checks Davis was allegedly able to steal thousands of dollars from Dinwiddie businesses along route one.

"The checks were payable to different people and different names," said Capt. William Knott, Dinwiddie County Sheriff's Office.

Police say Davis recruited others into his fraudulent scheme, approaching them at night clubs and Metro stops in Northern Virginia.

"He struck up a conversation with them and the conversation led to," Hey look are you interested in making some quick money," Knott said.

Davis used several aliases and went by the nickname "Bookie." Police were able to recover one of the fake ID's used in the crimes after arresting an accomplice. They traced the origin of the false ID back to an ID store in Washington D.C.

"We contacted that store and basically found for $40 that anyone could go into this store, with no other form of identification, fill out an application for an ID card and they would give you an ID card," Knott said.

Investigators believe Davis and his accomplices traveled up and down the I-95 and I-85 corridors between D.C. and North Carolina cashing bad checks as they went.

"He was always with them, he was travelling with them, he was sending them in to cash these checks.  He was getting the biggest portion of the money giving them a cut for cashing the counterfeit checks," Knott said.

The checks ranged from $400-$500 and quickly added up to thousands lost for local businesses.

"This is taking a big toll out of their bottom line when they have to absorb these type of losses, four or five hundred dollars at a pop," Knott said.

Because the bad checks Davis cashed were for amounts over $200, he faces felony fraud charges.

If you have information on the whereabouts of Samuel Lorenzo Davis or any of the fugitives we've featured tonight, call 12. Phone lines are open until 7:00 tonight...345-1212.
