Crime Stoppers: Elderly Woman Scammed

On Wednesday January 7, 2009, a white male knocked on the door of an elderly female’s residence on Stevenson Road in Franklin, saying he was there to do roof repair.

Before leaving, the suspect stole three checks from the 95-year-old woman's checkbook. One of the stolen checks was cashed by a subject identified as Michael Allison, Sr. Allison is wanted in Simpson County in connection with a prior scam.

A second suspect tried to cash another one of the stolen checks at the Regions Bank Main Branch. He was captured on surveillance video. Authorities are hoping someone knows the whereabouts of Michael J Allison Sr. and can help identify his accomplice.
