Twin Falls, Idaho ( KMVT-TV / KTWT-TV ) - The Twin Falls Police Department and the U.S. Marshals service are looking for a man recently spotted in Twin Falls who they are wanting to question. Authorities say they are seeking information about Jeremy Douglas Blevins, 29 on suspicion of defrauding retailers by paying for items with insufficient funds and then pawning the items for cash.
Police say Blevins was recently seen in Twin Falls where he has family. He has allegedly targeted retailers in Twin Falls and Boise and is suspected to have attempted to defraud other businesses outside the state. He has been charged in U.S. District court with violating conditions of supervised release with original charges of failing to appear in court and knowingly using checks with insufficient funds. In addition to that other charges may be pending.
Police in Twin Falls released the photo that shows a leaner looking male with reddish hair but, they say, he was last seen with black hair and weighing about 280 pounds.
Now, authorities are asking for your help. If you have any information about Blevins, you are asked to call the Police at 735-4357 or the U.S. Marshal’s Boise office at 208-334-1299.
