Police seek help in identifying counterfeiting suspect
Texarkana, Texas, police are asking for the public’s assistance in locating a suspect who has been circulating fake money.
The suspect recently paid for $25 in gas at a convenience store in the 3400 block of New Boston Road with a $100 bill. The clerk quickly figured out that it was fake and brought it to the attention of their manager. Employees then went outside to confront the man, who was still pumping the gas into his maroon Ford F-150 truck with Texas tags. He told the manager that his boss gave him the money to buy gas and offered to return the $75 that the clerk had given back to him as change. After he left, they realized that he replaced the three $20 bills the clerk had given him with fake ones.
If anyone recognizes this suspect, please call TTPD at 903798-3116 or Texarkana Area CrimeStoppers at 903-793-STOP.
