Ocean City Police Looking Man Attempting to Use Counterfit Money on Boardwalk
How far does a fake $50 bill take you on the Ocean City boardwalk? Apparently not very far. Police are searching for a suspect accused of trying to pass off fake currency this past Monday. Have you seen him?
Ocean City Police received three reports of money being passed to boardwalk merchants Monday, July 7 approximately 1:45 p.m. and 3:15 p.m., according to NBC40.net.
Authorities say all incidents involved the same white male trying to use counterfeit $50 bills. The first incident occurred in the 1000 block of the boardwalk. The next two times occurred along the 600 block.
The suspect is described as a white male, with tattoos on both arms, facial hair, and a distinctive hair cut in the back. He was reportedly traveling with a middle-aged woman, a child, and a disabled juvenile in a wheel chair.
Ya think he would have tried $100 bills, no? I mean, go big or go home, right?
