MILTON, Del.- Delaware State Police are looking for a Lincoln man accused of scamming a woman with a fraudulent check.

Troopers said 42-year-old Booker T. Martin is wanted on the charges of second-degree forgery, theft by pretense and receiving stolen property.

Police said that on June 29 of last year, Martin persuaded the 20-year-old victim to deposit a check of substantial amount into her bank account and withdraw most of it to give to him.

Troopers said the check was found to be from a closed account, and the woman's account was charged more than $2,100.

Anyone with information on Martin's whereabouts is asked to contact Detective Shockley at (302) 856-5850, ext. 257, or Delaware Crime Stoppers at 1-800-TIP-3333.  Information may also be provided via www.tipsubmit.com
