Suspect Used Counterfeit Bills to Buy Gift Card: East Lyme Police

East Lyme police are trying to identify a woman accused of using counterfeit bills to buy a gift card at a local Stop & Shop.

Police said the woman pictured above bought a $150 gift card from the Stop & Shop on Flanders Road around 10:30 p.m. Monday.

The eight $20 bills used for the purchase were counterfeit, according to police, who said the bills had an odd texture, did not contain an internal security strip, and had three repeating serial numbers.

The suspect was wearing a green camouflage hooded sweatshirt, dark pants and dark colored sneakers with a white sole at the time. She left in a dark-colored SUV, police said.

Anyone with information on the suspect’s identity should contact police.
