Richmond police are looking for help identifying a pair believed to be passing funny money.
Shortly after 2 in the afternoon last Saturday, a woman purchased a money order at the Korner Food Market on Thompson Highway in Richmond with three counterfeit $20 dollar bills. Unfortunately, the clerk did not realize the cash was fake until after the woman and her male associate had walked out of the store.
According to Richmond police spokesperson Master Sergeant Lowell Neinast, “The clerk observed the suspect leaving the area with an unidentified male in a silver, 4-door- Chevrolet sedan. The clerk was able to get a partial license Texas plate number of C65.”
Although the man, who is visible in the surveillance photos, did not pass any counterfeit cash, police would like to talk with him as well as the woman who passed the fake bills.
Richmond detectives are asking anyone with identifying details on the suspect or the male who accompanied her, or circumstances surrounding this incident, to please contact the Richmond Police Department at (281) 342-2849 or Fort Bend County Crime Stoppers at (281) 342-TIPS (8477)
