Counterfeit money continues to show up around the region.

On Friday, the Hays Police Department received reports of counterfeit bills being passed at businesses in Hays.

The investigation led to a $100 bill being passed at Radio Shack, 4333 Vine Street on Thursday.

There was another $100 bill passed at Westlake Ace Hardware, 3300 Vine Street the same day.

Video surveillance from both stores indicates the same suspect passed both $100 bills. A 3rd counterfeit $100 bill was passed at Hastings, 3300 Vine Street, recently. Video surveillance has not confirmed the same suspect passed that counterfeit bill.

The suspect is a white male and appears to be in his 20’s or early 30’s. The suspect is less than 6 feet tall with a thin build. The suspect was wearing black pants, black and gray striped long sleeve shirt, white shoes, and a black hat. It appears the suspect is wearing a gold watch on his right wrist and necklace around his neck. He may have a bracelet on his left wrist. The suspect may also have tattoos covering both forearms.

Anyone with information or that may have contact with this suspect should contact the Hays Police Department immediately. The suspect is presumed innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
