The Kent Island Bay Times - - Bay Views -

STEVENSVILLE — Coun­ter­feit bills passed at the Food Lion gro­cery store in Stevensville were re­ported to the Queen Anne’s County Of­fice of the Sher­iff. On Sept. 30, at ap­prox­i­mately 7 p.m. deputies were dis­patched to a re­port of three coun­ter­feit $100 dol­lar bills be­ing passed at the gro­cery store.

Upon ar­rival, deputies made con­tact with the em­ploy­ees. They re­ported that the sus­pect came into the store alone and pur­chased two $100 dol­lar gift cards and a birth­day cake. The to­tal was $215 dol­lars. The sus­pect then passed three coun­ter­feit $100 dol­lar bills to the cashier. The sus­pect then left the store and it is un­known what type of ve­hi­cle he was op­er­at­ing.

Ac­cord­ing to the po­lice re­port the store em­ploy­ees ad­vised that the coun­ter­feit pen did not de­tect that the bill was fraud­u­lent. It was later found to be fraud­u­lent when a man­ager caught it while count­ing the money in the till. Af­ter pass­ing the bills, the sus­pect was able to ob­tain a to­tal of $215 dol­lars’ worth of mer­chan­dise and $85 dol­lars in cash.

A photo from the surveil­lance video of the sus­pect has not yet been re­leased. How­ever, QACOS Dep. Bush was able to view the video and con­firmed the same sus­pect that passed coun­ter­feit money at the Queen­stown Sept. 26.

The sus­pect is de­scribed as African Amer­i­can, male, thin build, with shoul­der length dread­locks. The in­ves­ti­ga­tion is on­go­ing. Out­let on
