Police update photo of fraud suspect wanted all over state

LACONIA — Police have distributed a more recent photograph of Shawn Cochrane, 44, who has been using checks drawn on closed or otherwise invalid bank accounts to make purchases throughout the state and is wanted by police in a number of cities and towns, including Laconia.

Detective Kevin Butler said yesterday that since Laconia Police warned retail merchants against Cochrane on Thursday, he has received reports from victims of his fraudulent activity from Moultonborough, Belmont and Gilford in the Lakes Region as well as from Manchester, Goffstown Rochester, Portsmouth and Brentwood.

Police first reported that Cochrane was writing checks on a closed account with TD Bank, but have since learned that he is drawing on an invalid account with Northeast Credit Union. On November 5 he registered a 2014 silver Nissan bearing New Hampshire plate 3650435 and is accompanied by a man and woman, neither of whom have been identified.

Cochrane has an extensive criminal history, which includes numerous thefts and frauds. Police warn local businesses not to sell or buy from Cochrane and to notify the police of any transactions that appear to be fraudulent. Anyone who may know of Cochrane's whereabouts should not approach him, but instead should notify their local police department.
