Caught On Cam: Man Uses Counterfeit $50 Bill

ODESSA, TX (KWES) -

Odessa Crime Stoppers need your help looking for a man who made a purchase with a counterfeit bill. He walked into CVS Pharmacy, picked out a printer cartridge and pays for it with a $50 bill. He did his shopping, bought the ink and another item, stands at the counter, collects his change and walks out the door. But later, the clerk notices something is off. 

"Later on, they got to looking at the bill and it was actually some bills put together, made to look like a $50," said Odessa Crime Stoppers, Susan Rogers. "It actually had a portion of a $5 in it, so when she ran the ink marker across it, it showed to be an actual bill, but it really was not, it was portions of other bills."

The footage picks up the criminal's behavior and it is quickly noted. 

"You can tell on camera that he's nervous," said Rogers. "He's folding the bill in half, looking at the door, looking around and everything and he keeps playing with the $50 before he hands it to her."

While all this happened back on September 2, the guy still needs to be caught, not just on camera. 

"He's about 5'7", wearing jeans, a blue shirt and work boots," Rogers said. "I think if somebody took a close look at him, we'll get him pretty quickly."

Rogers also encourages cashiers to really pay attention to the bills they're being given. In this case, the counterfeit $50 turned out to be obvious, it just needed a second look. If you have any information on this man, give Odessa Crime Stoppers a call at 432-333-TIPS. You will remain anonymous and could land yourself a cash reward.

    More than half of the 17 people killed when a tourist boat sank on a Branson lake were members of the same Indiana family, and they likely wouldn't have been on the ill-fated trip but for a ticket mix-up.
