Suspect 1BThis guy’s been passing funny money all over the CSRA, with reports of counterfeit money in Richmond, Columbia and Aiken counties.

Examples:

  • COLUMBIA COUNTY: On June 10, he passed a $100 bill at the Circle K at 190 Baston Road and three $50 bills at the Woodbridge Circle K on June 15. He was driving the same silver or champagne colored late 90’s or early 2000 model Honda Accord in both cases.  In one case, he wore a camouflage Georgia “G” baseball cap and in another he wore a dark-colored Atlanta “Braves” hat.
  • Suspect 2BAIKEN COUNTY: Counterfeit $100 bills with the same serial number as the other cases were used June 14 at the New Moon Cafe o Laurens Street in Aiken.

Two were also passed June 28 at Dicks Sporting Goods at Augusta Mall.

Car 2Richmond County has reportedly been getting hit hard with the same guy but their surveillance images are poor quality. These photos are all from the Columbia County cases.

    How are there still places using 240p video cameras? They make enough off scratch off tickets in a day to buy a multi camera 1000080p 120fps system. The images for this story look like they were taken with a fisher price model PoS. The ones from the Cabela’s story a couple days ago don’t look much better.

    Beyond cameras, has any of these stores considered investing a very small amount in counterfeit detection pens or machines? I had my 50’s scanned just the other day at a Publix.
