Fugitive Watch Logo 77x77px

Police are investigating a possible scam brought to light Thursday when a resident reported a fraudulent warning letter bearing the city of Pleasant Hill’s insignia on his car. The resident told police around 3:50 p.m. Thursday that he discovered a “vehicle abatement” letter on his parked car on Kathleen Drive.

The letter was falsely presented as coming from Pleasant Hill city officials and is believed to be a ploy to get the vehicle’s owner to sell the car at a lower price, police said. The suspect who placed the letter on the man’s car is described as a Hispanic man in his late 20s or early 30s who is about 5 feet 9 inches tall with a medium build and short, curly black hair. He was last seen driving a black Audi with California license plate number 4ASN540.
