Yavapai County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public's help identifying a man and woman suspected of using counterfeit money at a Family Dollar store in Cordes Lake on Saturday night.

According to YCSO, the couple came into the store on E Hitching Post around 6:30 p.m. They made separate purchases at the register, each paying with a counterfeit $100 bill.

The register employee was initially unsure of the authenticity of the currency until a supervisor confirmed the bills were fake. Deputies also confirmed the bills were counterfeit based on missing security features.

The female suspect told the clerk they were from Phoenix, heading toward Prescott Valley.
