KPD apologizes for releasing photos of innocent shoppers alleged of check fraud

KILLEEN, Texas -

Killeen Police are apologizing for releasing photos of innocent people they believed were involved in cashing fraud checks. 

Tuesday, KPD released a press statement with photos of four people accused of cashing fake checks at the H-E-B in Stan Schlueter. 

Thursday afternoon, Commander Alex Gearheart recanted the press releasing saying those people were not involved. 

"Through continued investigation, our detectives determined that the video and photographs that were provided to the police department depicting a black female, black male and Hispanic female together at the counter were from a legitimate transaction, not the forgery case.  Those three individuals are not considered suspects in this case," said Cdr. Gearheart, "The Killeen Police Department would like to apologize for any inconvenience the error may have caused."

Detectives say they're still looking for four people who cashed the fraud checks.
