CALLAWAY COUNTY- Callaway County Sheriff's Department is investing the passing of counterfeit one hundred dollar bills. On Sunday Febraury 24 three counterfeit bills were reported in the an hours time. The bills were passed at Casey's General Store in Auxvasse and Dollar General in Auxvasse and Ozarkland in Kingdom City.

Casey's and Ozarkland declinded to comment but Dollar General Spokesperson Dan MacDonald spoke about Dollar General's cooperation with the authorities and hope of finding the suspect.

"We, at Dollar General, want to cooperate with all of the authorities involved with the case. We hope that they will be able to find the suspect," said MacDonald.

After the bills were passed in Callaway County the suspect went into southern Audrain county and passed more of the counterfeit bills along the Highway 54 Corridor. Official investigators think the suspect may not be working alone because she got into the passenger side of a older black Chevy Impala without license plates.

Surveillance video was acquired from one local business and the unknown suspect is believed to be in her mid-to-late 20's, with a medium build. The suspect looks to be pregnant and has a noticeable Southern accent.

The Callaway County Sheriff's Department is warning small business owners to take extra precautions to avoid accepting counterfeit bills.

If the suspect is found she could be charged with state and federal charges.
