Ville Platte - Chief Lartigue is warning businesses to be vigilant while cashing payroll checks. The Ville Platte Police Department investigative unit is currently working four cases where fake business payroll checks have been printed and cashed at local stores.

Chief Lartigue stated that it may be necessary to call the company to verify that the check is real and payable to the person attempting to cash the check.

If you attempt to verify that a check is real and there are any discrepancies or you believe the check to be fake or fraudulent, please contact the Ville Platte Police Department immediately.

Chief Lartigue urges anyone who would like to report suspicious or illegal activity, to please call 363-1313 or 911. Your call will remain anonymous.
