Counterfeiters hungry in Bloomfield Township
Police are investigating a pair of counterfeiting incidents discovered at two different restaurants on Saturday, March 5, in Bloomfield Township.
Bloomfield Township police responded about 5:30 p.m. to the complaint of a counterfeit bill being used to pay for food at Como’s Pizza, 4135 W. Maple Road. The manager told police two men came to the restaurant and paid for their pizza using a $100 bill. The cashier verified the bill was counterfeit with a identifying pen. The cashier noticed a second bill with identical serial numbers, after the men left the store.
Police responded about 6:45 p.m to Thai Taste To Go, 3955 Telegraph, for another counterfeit complaint. An employee told police a man and woman paid for their meals using a counterfeit bill.
Police said the couple attempted to use counterfeit money at a restaurant next door, prior to entering the Thai food restaurant. The couple was described as a black male, wearing all black and a black mask; and a black woman with a heavy-set build wearing blue jeans, brown boots and a black Detroit Tiger’s hat. They were last seen leaving the area in a red GMC Terrain.
