PRATTVILLE, AL (WSFA) -

Prattville Police are searching for two suspects they say used a homeless man as a pawn in an attempt to forge a check.

Investigators say around 7 a.m. on May 17, two suspects in an SUV picked up a homeless man from the Salvation Army in Montgomery. The suspects then asked the homeless man if he wanted to work. All three left the area in what appears to be a Dodge SUV.

The three went to a restaurant and then to a thrift store, according to Prattville Police. The suspects then proceeded to drive to the Prattville Walmart where they instructed the homeless man to cross the street and cash a check at the Hancock Bank. When the man attempted to cash the check, the bank refused because the check had been forged.

The two suspects fled the area before police arrived, according to CrimeStoppers. The homeless man has been identified.

If you can identify or know the current whereabouts of the subjects, please call police or CrimeStoppers immediately at 215-STOP.
