Mercer County authorities looking for woman using counterfeit money

Authorities in Mercer County are asking for the public’s help in finding someone who allegedly used counterfeit bills at a local retailer.

Mercer County Crimestoppers says a female entered a business they did not identify Tuesday afternoon and used fake money to make a purchase.

It’s not clear what was purchased, but you can see a store surveillance of the person they’re trying to identify here.

If you know who it is, you’re asked to call Mercer County Crimestoppers at 1-800-582-2762, or locally at (309) 582-3500.

You could be eligible for a reward of up to $1,000 if your information leads to an arrest.
