BOSSIER CITY, La. (KTAL/KMSS) — Bossier City police have released images to the public in hopes of getting the name of a man accused of dressing up as a woman and using fake money at a convenience store earlier this month.
According to the Bossier City Police Department, officers received a call on Sunday, July 4 about someone using counterfeit money at the Circle K at 2001 Old Minden Road.
When police arrived at the scene, an employee told them that a customer walked into the store between 2:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. to buy a drink, cigarettes, candy, and $10 worth of gas.
The person in the images reportedly gave the cashier two $100 bills to pay for the items, which only cost $22.37. The cashier gave the individual $177.63 in change but later found out that the hundred-dollar bills were fake.
Authorities say they believe the person who used the fake money was a black man who dressed up as a woman. He is described as having breasts, being 6’1″ tall, wearing a wig. Police say he was also wearing a lot of make-up to cover his beard.
