Blotter: Flower Mound police search for ‘pink tie’ suspect

Comments () A Text Size

The Flower Mound Police Department is seeking the public’s help in identifying a suspect in a string of frauds.

Police said that over the past several months, an unknown man — known for wearing a pink tie and long-sleeved blue dress shirt — has reportedly stolen identities of numerous individuals to open fraudulent accounts at retail stores in the Dallas-Fort Worth area, Houston, San Antonio and Memphis, Tenn.

The fraudulent charges total more than $50,000, according to a press release issued by the Flower Mound Police Department.

The suspect, police said, has been described as a white or Hispanic male with a thin build and dark hair. He walks with a noticeable limp and has used a motorized scooter on occasion.

Police are asking that anyone who has information related to this individual contact the Flower Mound Police Tip Line at 972-874-3307.
