Po­lice seek help in iden­ti­fy­ing coun­ter­feit­ing sus­pect

Texarkana Gazette - - METRO/STATE -

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.
