“Magic” Responsible For Disappearing Checks

The Sacramento Police Department is seeking help from the community to identify a female suspect.

On Friday, June 5, 2009, the French Nail Salon (3256 J Street) was burglarized.  The investigation has revealed that the suspect entered the business earlier in the day and obtained a manicure.  She returned that night to burglarize the business and stole business checks.

A few days after the burglary, two women enter the US Bank on Alhambra Blvd and attempt to open an account using stolen checks from the salon.  One woman was arrested but her accomplice fled the scene.  The photographs are of the accomplice and her true identity is unknown.  She is known as "Magic", and is described as a Black or Hispanic female in her 30's.  She is 5'4" with a light complexion and tattoos on her left forearm and right wrist. 

The Sacramento Police Department urges anyone with information pertaining to this crime or this person, to contact Crime Alert at (916) 443-HELP or text in a tip to 274637 (CRIMES).  Enter SACTIP followed by the tip information.  Callers can remain anonymous and may be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000.
