The Ada County Sheriff’s Office says it has identified a man who passed counterfeit money at a local convenience store last month. Detectives say they are talking with the man and no charges have been filed at this point.
The man was seen in surveillance photos wearing a tie-dye shirt and bandana.
Investigators say he and a woman, also seen in the photos, pulled into a convenience store at Five Mile and Lake Hazel roads in a small red passenger car around 2:30 a.m. on July 24.
Investigators searching for man who passed fake $50 bill
They stood outside for few minutes while the man smoked a cigarette and then went inside the store. After milling around for a few more minutes, he made about $5 in purchases with a phony $50 bill and left.
Detectives released the surveillance camera photos to the media earlier today. They thanked the public for helping identify the man so quickly.
