Bogus bills turn up at Starbucks on the Avenue
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.”
