Milford police are asking for the public’s help in identifying suspects connected to multiple counterfeit money cases.
On March 25, an unidentified black man and another unidentified suspect used $600 in counterfeit bills at the Shore Stop in the 400 block of Bay Road, and an additional $1,700 in counterfeit bills at the Rite Aid in the 600 block of N. Dupont Boulevard, said Milford Police Department spokesman Detective Dwight Young.
Detectives believe the suspects used counterfeit $100 bills at gas stations and pharmacies throughout the state to purchase visa gift cards, Young said.
The Milford Police Department recommends local businesses to use a counterfeit checking device before accepting any $100 bills, especially in the case of gift card purchases, Young said.
No further information regarding the suspects is available, but police said one of the suspects may be driving a white Chevrolet Impala with California registration 6MJL981.
Anyone with information regarding these incidents is asked to call 422-8081 or Delaware Crime Stoppers at (800) TIP-3333 or online at tipsubmit.com.
