Cleveland detectives are searching for a man wanted on charges of forgery.

According to detective Steve Ross of the Cleveland Police Department Criminal Investigations Division, Kristopher Kolhouse is wanted for allegedly taking checks from a relative and forging them.

Ross said Kolhouse’s last known address was 2020 Bates Pike.

Anyone having information regarding Kolhouse’s whereabouts can contact Ross at 303-3120.

- In a separate case, Ross filed a warrant which led to the arrest of Kristy L. Ellis, 40.

Ellis allegedly took information from relatives and established credit card accounts which have resulted in fraud charges of more than $15,000 with the cards.

Through the investigation, Ross learned Ellis reportedly applied for cards online, citing herself as an authorized user.

The victims were notified of the unauthorized usage after a fraud alert company noticed the attempts and success of opening credit card accounts.

“We are continuing to develop leads in the investigation and additional arrests could be possible,” Ross said Thursday.

Ellis was charged with two counts of identity theft and fraudulent use of a credit card over $10,000.

- A variety of tools including two electric welders and other items were reported stolen from a garage located at a Farris Street address.

Two victims were listed in a report filed by deputy Tim Robinson of the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office.

According to his report, Ronald Lynn and Bennie Wyatt lost $4,825 in the burglary.

Among the missing items were carpentry and mechanical tools, fishing gear and camping equipment.

The theft was believed to have occurred during the past weekend.

Investigation is being conducted by the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigations Division.
