Police Warn Of ATM Scam

West Haven police are asking the public for help in identifying a woman in a check scam operating at local ATMs,  and are warning the public about the crime.

Police say in the past two weeks,  a woman has approached customers at the ATM of a local bank, asking the customer to cash a check for her,  and to deposit the check.  The checks,  which are believed to have been stolen, are on closed accounts,  and bounce.

Police released a security camera image of the woman.  They say she appears to be targeting young customers and those from other countries.
