Bo­gus bills turn up at Star­bucks on the Av­enue

Greenwich Time - - NEWS - By Robert Marchant

GREEN­WICH — Forged dol­lar bills turned up in the cash box at Star­bucks on Green­wich Av­enue this week, po­lice said.

An em­ployee was clos­ing down the cash reg­is­ter Mon­day evening and dis­cov­ered two sus­pi­cious $20 bills, po­lice said. A store man­ager went to po­lice head­quar­ters Tues­day to re­port the bo­gus bills.

Forged bills have been turn­ing up around the re­gion in re­cent months. In July, po­lice ar­rested a cou­ple from Brook­lyn who al­legedly spent fake $100 bills on Green­wich Av­enue.

Po­lice are ad­vis­ing work­ers in town to be vig­i­lant about coun­ter­feit money.

“It’s typ­i­cally more preva­lent dur­ing the shop­ping sea­son,” said Green­wich po­lice Lt. John Slusarz. “Peo­ple work­ing in stores should be mind­ful of that.”
