Crime Brief: Pet Food Customer Pays With Counterfeit Cash

The following information was supplied by Chesterfield Township police. If arrest information applies, it does not indicate a conviction.

A woman in her mid-30s attempted to buy pet food with counterfeit cash this month at on Gratiot Avenue in Chesterfield Township, according to a report.

At approximately 3:40 p.m. July 17, the customer, who was clad in a pink tank top, jean shorts and spoke with a Southern drawl, went to the register with $52 worth of pet food. She handed over two $50 bills that the employee immediately recognized as fakes, Chesterfield Township police said.

When he told her the two bills had the same serial numbers, she snatched them back and quickly left the store. She backed out her late 1990s to early 2000s vehicle painted in gray primer so store employees could not see her license plate number, police said.

Her identity was not known and there was no surveillance footage of the incident.

I used to think that buying bigger was better, Meal planning is key, so look for the items you’d need to create healthy meals, Plan your meals based on what’s on sale and see if you can find samples from "Official Samples" that is even better
