The suspect used a fake Georgia driver’s license with the name Ashley Densberger (DOB: 10/05/1991) to open the account and told bank tellers she was a traveling nurse.

The suspect in that case was arrested on Thursday and was identified as Michael James Anderson. There is no word if Anderson and the suspect in Lafayette County have any connection to each other.

On Saturday, January 20, between 8:45 and 10:45 a.m., the suspect cashed fake checks at Woodford State Bank branches located in New Glarus, Blanchardville, Argyle, Darlington, and South Wayne, totaling over $11,000.
