Fayetteville Police are asking for the public’s assistance in locating a subject wanted for fraud.


46-year old Richard Paul Straw II, of 426 Vida Circle, is wanted on 20 charges ranging from Uttering Forged Instrument, Forgery of Instrument, to Financial Card Theft.  Straw obtained debit cards and blank checks from a single victim.  Straw would then use the cards and checks to obtain cash to support his drug habit.


Straw recently purchased $1,000 worth of cocaine to use in an attempt to commit suicide.  After his attempt failed, Straw was admitted to Cape Fear Valley Behavioral Health Center for evaluation.  He was released today.  


Anyone coming into contact with Straw is advised to use extreme caution as the suspect is considered a danger to himself and others.
