The Bedford County Sheriff's Office on Friday released a picture of one of the two men they are searching for, in connection with a fake check scam and police chase from Wednesday.

Officers believe Antonio Waring, of Raleigh, North Carolina, was one of two men inside a Nissan Altima, who left a woman in a parking lot in Forest on Wednesday afternoon, and sped off into Lynchburg.  Police later found the car abandoned and still running in the Wyndhurst area.

Investigators have not named the second suspect.

Officers arrested the woman left behind.  Deputies say 24-year-old Lachelle Lynette Slaughter, of Lynchburg, knowingly cashed a forged check at the Bank of the James branch in Forest.
