There was a flurry
of phony C-notes in Valparaiso on Thursday.
Valparaiso Police, in less than an hour a man passed or attempted to pass a
counterfeit $100 bill at three different business on LaPorte Ave. and
The first business
was Culver’s, where at 12:30 p.m. the man tried to use a phony $100 bill in
the drive-through. When the clerk began looking for the bill’s inner
security strip, the suspect fled the scene in a black Honda Civic. Police
said that the suspect was accompanied by a female.
later, at 1 p.m., apparently the same man did the same thing at Gelsosomo’s,
and this time succeeded, buying a pizza with a counterfeit $100 bill.
Finally, at 1:30
p.m., the suspect entered the Dollar General on Lincolnway and tried to buy
a pack of cigarettes with a phony $100 bill. The clerk foiled this attempt
and the man left the store.
The suspect is
described as a black male with a “thick build,” wearing a baseball cap, dark
blue jeans, and a Captain America tee-shirt.
