Police have released CCTV images of a man they want to find following an attempted bank fraud.

A man tried to cash a fraudulent business cheque at Natwest in Heckmondwike.

The incident happened last month, but police have now released pictures taken from CCTV footage.

Police Sergeant Andrew Bentley, from Spen Valley Neighbourhood Policing Team, said: "The incident occurred on February 27 when the man entered the Natwest branch on Market Place and attempted to cash a fraudulent business cheque.

"After internal systems flagged up previous attempts to defraud money from the business account the man was asked to wait for the manager and at this point he left the branch.

"The CCTV images are good quality and I would appeal for anyone recognising the man to get in touch."

Contact the Spen Valley NPT by calling 101 or contacting Crimestoppers, anonymously and in confidence, on 0800 555 111.
