Crime Stoppers: Redmond PD seek man in bad-check cases


Redmond police asked the public Thursday to help them find a man suspected of passing checks on a closed bank account in the Bend-Redmond area and wanted on an arrest warrant in a separate but similar case.

Shawn Robert Lee, 53, is a Central Oregon resident with no permanent address, Lt. Curtis Chambers said. He is a suspect in several criminal investigations involving the passing of checks on a closed account in Redmond and in the Bend area.

Lee also has a standing arrest warrant on an unrelated matter, Chambers said, adding that Redmond police are aware that “Lee is traveling between Bend and Redmond frequently.”

If you have any information on Lee’s whereabouts, please call Deschutes County dispatch at 541-693-6911.

You can also call the Crime Stoppers Tip Line at 1-877-876-TIPS. You can remain anonymous, and you could be eligible for a cash reward.

Court records show a warrant was issued for Lee by a Deschutes County Judge earlier this week after he failed to appear in court for a plea hearing in a case in which he’s charged with second-degree theft and negotiating a bad check at a Sisters hardware store last July.

He faces similar charges for passing a bad check on the same day last July at a Prineville jewelry store for jewelry worth more than $1,000. He was conditionally released last month after a court appearance on that charge and has another hearing scheduled next week.
