Man wanted for forging court documents

DUNWOODY, Ga. -- Dunwoody Police have secured warrants for a man accused of scamming a woman who was supposed to appear in court.

According to Dunwoody Police spokesman Sgt. Mike Carlson, 46-year-old Carlos Sanchez Esquivel of Marietta will face a charge of first degree forgery.

Esquivel's alleged victim, 27-year-old Yovany Baltazar-Cardenas, received a traffic citation in Dunwoody last September. Esquivel told Baltazar-Cardenas not to appear at her scheduled court date because she was in the country illegally. He also told her that he worked as a court translator and would be able to take care of her citations, Carlson said.

Police said Esquivel charged Baltazar-Cardenas $1,000 for fake court documents in exchange for her citations.

When the victim did not attend court on her scheduled date, she was arrested for failure to appear.

Dunwoody Police are asking anyone else who may have been scammed by Esquivel to come forward. Contact Dunwoody Police by calling 678-382-6914 or leaving a crime tip at www.dunwoodypolice.com.
