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.
The suspect walked out of the store and entered a dark colored sedan, police said. At 1:52 p.m., the male suspect exited the same sedan and entered the store. He bought a prepaid MasterCard and a bottle of Aquafina water with three fake “washed” $50 bills, police said.
Evidence is being held in Alpharetta, and Milton Police have contacted the U.S. Secret Service office in Atlanta about the incident. Anyone with information about this incident can submit a crime tip and contact the Milton Police Department through its Facebook page.
