Bogus bills passed in Bullhead City; police seek info on suspects
BULLHEAD CITY - Bullhead City Police seek the public's help in identifying two people who passed counterfeit $20 bills.
The first incident occurred on Jan. 4 when a woman presented the clerk at a Bullhead City convenience store two bogus bills, which she seized. The woman pulled out two more $20 bills and they, too, were counterfeit. Three days later, a man attempted to purchase items with counterfeit money. The clerk also seized that bill and the man left.
Detectives took possession of the bills and noticed each one had the same serial number, according to Bullhead City Police spokeswoman Emily Fromelt.
The woman is described as white with a large frame and long blond hair. The man is described as white with a medium build, facial hair and between 30 and 40 years old, said Fromelt.
Employees at other stores reported counterfeit $20 bills were used and police are reviewing surveillance video. Anyone who can identify the pair is asked to call Bullhead City Police at 928-763-9200, or after hours at 928-763-1999. Ask to speak with detective Edward Betts.
