Owner of Popular El Paso Website Among ‘Most Wanted’ for Allegedly Altering Checks
The long-time administrator of a popular Facebook page known for posting about local events and attractions has attracted some attention himself.
Ceasar Torres, “owner and creator” of El Paso 411, is one of El Paso’s Most Wanted Fugitives. Torres is wanted by the El Paso Police Department on two counts of Forgery Financial Instrument, per Crime Stoppers.
According to Det. Javier Sambrano, “[he] is alleged to have altered checks to cash them for a larger amount than what they were originally issued for.” Forgery of a Financial Instrument is a state felony punishable by up to two years in the state penitentiary and up to a $10,000 fine.
Both the El Paso 411 website and Facebook page are currently down and not accessible on the Internet. It is not known if Torres’ legal problem is the reason why. EP 411 did not respond to a request for comment.
