Corpus Christi Police Detectives would like help from the public to identify and locate a man who may have passed counterfeit bills in Corpus Christi stores.
Corpus Christi Police have responded to a convenience store located at 4010 Causeway Boulevard on February 21, 2016 at 7:10pm and the clerk told the Officer that a man attempted to buy merchandise with a fake $100 bill. The store clerk told Officers she recognized the bill as not real, challenged the man about the counterfeit money, and the man then paid with real cash and left the store before Police arrived. The clerk provided Officers with the fake bill which was collected as evidence.
Corpus Christi Police Detectives believe there are four other cases in which counterfeit bills have been passed which are at locations in Corpus Christi. Detectives have released images of the man suspected of passing the bills and would like help from the public to identify and locate the man.
Detectives have described the man as a male with medium brown skin, with full sleeve tattoos on both arms, and is missing a lower front tooth. Detectives believe the man is in the company of a woman whom Detectives would also like to identify and Detectives have described the woman as having medium brown skin with full sleeve tattoos on both arms and wears a”grill” over her teeth. Detectives believe the man and woman travel in a blue four door car.
Anyone who recognizes either of these two individuals, or has any additional information about these counterfeit cases, should call Crime Stoppers at 888-TIPS or submit the information online at http://www.888TIPS.com. Information which leads to an arrest may earn the caller a cash reward.
