ANOTHER CVP SCOOP: Saddle Brook police were looking for several people — including a young boy — who passed counterfeit currency at area businesses this week.
Managers from Donnagio’s Italian restaurant, the Medicine Shoppe pharmacy and Dunkin Donuts all gave police bogus $10 bills that they said were passed between 3:30-4 p.m. on Monday, Columbus Day.
A cashier at the CVS Pharmacy on Fairlawn Parkway also turned over a $100 that was used there that same day.
The customers all appeared to be in their late 20s to early 30s — except for a youngster with one of the women who appeared to be about 12, Police Chief Robert Kugler told CLIFFVIEW PILOT tonight.
The kid came to the Dunkin Donuts counter with a soda and a $10 bill just as the woman was handing over a ten for her purchase,” the chief said.
One of the women was about about 5-foot-5 and 130-140 pounds, wearing a green jacket and flower print shirt, Kugler said. The man was about 150-160 pounds, with a medium build, a full beard and a white baseball cap, he said.
“It is our hope that by distributing these video images, someone may be able to assist us in identifying the suspects and, at the same time, alert businesses to be careful accepting currency that may look real but turn out to be worthless,” Kugler said.
