Police: ID theft runs into victim at bank
MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) — Police say an Oregon man tried to cash a check from another man's account, only to run into his victim at the bank.
Medford police arrested 37-year-old Matthew Frombach on Saturday after the victim's friend chased him down and tackled him outside the bank.
Police say the 28-year-old victim noticed three forged checks worth $700 had been cashed on his account and went to his bank to discuss it. While he was there, police say Frombach showed up and tried to cash a fourth fraudulent check.
Before authorities arrived, police say Frombach tried to leave the bank and punched the suspect's friend in the face. The friend chased and tackled him as officers arrived.
The victim ordered new checks about two weeks ago, and police suspect they were stolen from the mail.

If It were me I'd be giving the thief a beatdown until I saw the cops.
I'd at least give him a "noogie" or something...

It is always nice to hear a story with a fairy tail ending.

A real fair tale ending would be the cops and buddy holding the twisted freak until the victim arrived to beat the perp to death while the cops and buddy held his arms behind his back.
