Tyler Police Department has received several counterfeit cases that have occurred over the past several weeks where the suspects are targeting garage sales to pass their counterfeit bills.
The victims have reported that three suspects are working together. They are describes as two white females and one white male. One female is described as being pregnant and the male has a spider web tattoo on his left elbow. They have been observed in a black older model Toyota and a dark green Saturn, unknown license plates.
The suspects are purchasing a very small ticket item with a twenty dollar counterfeit bill. The suspects have struck several garage sales over the past few weeks.
Please take a moment and check the quality of a twenty dollar bill and look for the water marks and texture of the paper. Another alternative to prevent victimization would be to take other denominations of bills.
