Counterfeit $100s pop up in Halifax County

SoVaNow.com / May 18, 2017
Authorities are warning local businesses and residents to watch out for counterfeit money after phony $100 bills were passed at businesses on a half-dozen occasions last week.

The South Boston Police Department and the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office are investigating the incidents and asking for the public’s help in identifying and locating the suspects. The South Boston Police Department is investigating four known cases where $100 counterfeit bills were passed, and the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office is investigating two known cases that are thought to be related. The incidents occurred between May 16-17.

Law enforcement officials believe at least two suspects are responsible for the spate of counterfeit bills. Both men are believed to be of Hispanic origin. One is described as being about 5’7” tall, possibly in his thirties, with short dark hair and clean cut. The second suspect is described as being of a slender build and unshaven.

The suspects may be traveling in a white 2014 Nissan Altima that has black in color front and rear bumpers, with Florida license plates.

Anyone having any information regarding the suspects or the vehicle is asked to contact SBPD Detective Randy Redd or Detective Chris Carswell at 434-575-7273 or the Halifax County Sheriff’s Office at 434-476-3399. Tips can also be called into the Halifax County Crime Line at 434-476-8445. If your tip results in an arrest and conviction, you may receive a cash reward.
