The Commerce Police Department would like to talk to a pair of white females who passed at least five bogus $10 bills early Saturday morning, Jan. 16.
The police may have video from one of the exchanges, and they have a tag number from the other victim that returns to a Talmo woman.
The first case took place at about 12:55 a.m. at Fuel Mart, Maysville Road, when the suspects entered the store. One purchased a pack of cigarettes with a $10 bill, then asked if the clerk could change a second $10 bill, which he did.
One of the women came back an hour later, and after she duplicated both transactions again with two more $10 bills, the clerk told police he got suspicious and walked around the counter to speak to the woman, who exited quickly and left with her accomplice in a gray Mazda, from which the clerk got a tag number.
The two then apparently came to the Flying J Travel Plaza at about 4:45 a.m., where they presented a $10 bill and asked that it be broken into two $5 bills. The clerk complied, later realizing that the bill was no good.
The store clerk told police that the transaction should be on the store’s surveillance tape, according to the report.
