Counterfeit Suspect
SUMMARY
The Evansville Police Department is asking for help in locating the person in these pictures. This person is accused of attempting to pass a fake $100 bill at Schnucks (5000 Washington Ave.) on March 23.
If anyone recognizes this person, they are asked to call the Evansville Police Department’s Financial Crimes Unit at 812-436-7991, or the WeTip Line at 1-800-78-CRIME.
It doesn't say if the counterfeit bill was actually passed or if it was flagged and caught at the time of purchasing goods from the Schnucks location.  Social media has really made it harder to get away with crime. With cameras everywhere and the ability to have your image shared with thousands of people at once, it's been a game changer for police departments across the US.
If you'd like to stay up to date with Evansville Police Department, they are very active on their Facebook page and use it often to update about crimes, but even fun things they have going on as well. Like for instance today they announced that their 2021 SWAT challenge will be taking place on May 1st.
