The Murfreesboro Police Department says they need the public’s help in identifying two men accused of using counterfeit money. Sgt. Kyle Evans released a picture of the culprits that was captured on the video surveillance camera of a tobacco store on Northfield Boulevard.
The two men apparently went into Marco’s Pizza and asked for change for a $100 bill. The men told the employee they had just left the tobacco store next door and that the clerk there did not have change for a 100. The employee at the pizza shop gave the men change for the 100 and the two men left the store. The pizzeria did not realize the bill was a fake until they took it to the bank for deposit.
The assistant manager of Marco’s Pizza confirmed with the clerk at the neighboring tobacco store that the suspects were caught on video and that they were regular customers.
The picture of the suspects is posted at WGNSradio.com (BELOW).
Sgt. Evans says that Detective JR Singleton is the investigator and if you can I.D. the suspects, call Crime Stoppers at 893-STOP(7867). You could be eligible for a cash reward if your information leads to an arrest.
