Cops: Underwear, jewelry bought with fake money at N. Fulton Target

Police in Milton are searching for two suspects who used funny money recently to purchase more than $200 worth of items from Target on Highway 9 in Milton.

The suspects are both described as African-American. One is a male and the other’s gender is unknown, police said.

According to a police report, surveillance video shows the unknown suspect entering the store at 1:39 p.m. on April 21 to purchase a ring, earrings and Hanes men’s underwear. The suspect paid for these items with a counterfeit $100 bill, police said.
