From the Mohave Daily News
Bullhead city police are seeking the public's help in tracking down a couple who have allegedly passed at least seven counterfeit $100 bills. The couple was recorded on surveillance video at Walmart, police spokeswoman Emily Montague said. The couple allegedly passed counterfeit bills on two separate dates. The first incident occurred on June 3 and the second on June 5. The couple is described as a 20- to 25-year-old white male with a shaved head, standing about 6-foot-1 and weighing about 200 pounds, and a dark-haired white woman standing about 5-foot-2, and weighing about 200 pounds. In the first incident, Montague said, the couple bought about $43 worth of items and paid for them with a fake $100 bill. Later the same day, she said, they returned and made a $215 purchase, again using counterfeit $100 bills. Video shows the couple leaving in a black Chevy HHR. At around 10 p.m. on June 5, Montague said, the couple purchased about $24 worth of merchandise using a counterfeit bill, and then made another transaction of $320. On this date, the couple left in a white-colored Ford Tempo. Anyone with any information about the couple is asked to call the Bullhead City Police Department at (928) 763-9200 or text keyword BHCTIPS, followed by an anonymous tip to 847411.
