Columbia police said Tuesday they were trying to identify two people who attempted to use bank cards and a stolen ID to withdraw money from a bank.
Officers responded to the 200 block of North Main Street for a report of a forgery, according to a Columbia Police Department news release.
A white man with dark hair in his 30s and a white woman believed to be wearing a blonde wig and gray baseball cap asked for cash using bank cards and an ID on Monday, police said. The pair drove a gray SUV with Illinois license plate Y918457.
The bank cards and ID were taken from a vehicle in the metro-east earlier Monday, the release stated.
