A man who reportedly used a forged cashier's check to steal a $32,000 recreational vehicle was last seen driving north out of Lawrence in his new home.

The suspect went to Mike's Auto Sales, 1001 N. Third, last week to look at the vehicle, made by Swinger.

``He looked at it, and said he wanted to buy it,'' Sgt. George Wheeler said.

The man returned Monday and bought the RV with a forged cashier's check for $32,000, Wheeler said. He hasn't been located since driving the motor home, which is white with tan stripes, north on North Third Street.

Wheeler said the suspect is a white male, approximately 36 years old, about 5 feet 9 inches tall, and weighing about 180 pounds.
