HOLLY (WWJ) - Police are searching for three persons of interest for passing counterfeit $100 bills in the Village of Holly.

Police say the trio is suspected of passing the bills to at least three businesses in the North Holly Road area on Sunday, Jan. 12. All of the bills have the same serial number and have a white strip on the back side of the bill.

Video surveillance indicates a black male was assisted by two black females, a younger woman with long braids and a heavyset woman in her 40's wearing a wig. All three suspects entered a white possible Ford Explorer and left the area.

Those who pass fake bills will usually try to make a purchase for a small amount in order to get a large amount of change to "launder" the bill and get clean currency. They will often attempt to pass them at a busy time or when several customers are waiting to rush a cashier.

If you believe you have been victimized and have a bill in your possession, call your local police department and make a report. If you have information about the crime or the identity of the suspects, contact the Holly Police Department at 248-634-8221.
