State police look for 2 women who allegedly used fake $100 bills
BREWSTER – State police looking for two women they say used these fake $100 bills to pay for items at an ACME Supermarket in Brewster as well as several other stores in Putnam County.
New York State Trooper AJ Hicks said the incidents happened November 25 and November 26 and they are still investigating exactly how many stores the suspects visited. At this time, there are only two surveillance photos of the suspects and are asking for the public’s help identifying them.
“They would go to the register with a small item use the fraudulent 100 dollar bill and receive change in the neighborhood of $90 dollars,” Hicks said. “I don’t have all the stores and it’s also a multiagency investigation so there have been multiple instances of this happening”
Last week Peekskill police also reported people trying to use phony $100 bills at several businesses. No word on if the two incidents are related.
In Brewster shoppers we spoke were surprised by the scam. The scam has cashiers on alert as police try and find the suspects.
“I cannot believe that people do such things. I can’t believe it,” Brewster Marcy Smith said.
