Men sought after using counterfeit money
BATON ROUGE - Sheriff's deputies released photos Tuesday of two men who used counterfeit money at an East Baton Rouge gas station recently.
Detectives said on April 13 two different men came into the Circle K at 6678 Siegen Lane to purchase money orders worth $300 each, using money which turned out to be fake.
Store clerks said they noticed later the $100 bills both men used had the same serial number and appeared to have been printed on the same piece of paper. Detectives said the other normal security features found on real money were also missing.
Detectives said the first man came in around 11:26 a.m., had short, braided hair and was wearing a red-and-white striped shirt with dark-colored pants. The second man came in an hour later and had a short haircut with a white shirt, blue jeans and glasses.
Anyone with information about the men's identity or the counterfeit money should call the East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office at (225) 389-5000.
