NORTH MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Police in North Myrtle Beach are looking for a fraud suspect and hope the public can help them locate their man.

It's been nearly two months since warrants were issued for the arrest of 30-year-old Carl Preston Johnson, Jr.

He is wanted for crimes against a federally chartered or insured financial institution for presenting falsified checks to the Anderson Brothers Bank, receiving $4,500 from the bank in November.
