Woman sought in counterfeit money cases

The Suffolk Police Department is seeking the public’s assistance identifying a woman wanted for passing counterfeit money and obtaining money by false pretense.

The incidents in question occurred Feb. 19 at several businesses in Suffolk, including a tack shop, two ABC stores, Dollar Tree and a couple of fast food restaurants, according to a city press release.

The subject is described as between 5 feet, 4 inches and 5 feet, 5 inches tall, about 180 pounds, a nose ring on the left side, with well-manicured nails, the city news release stated. She also is possibly pregnant, “as she rubs her stomach expectantly in surveillance video footage,” the news release stated.
