WAUSAU PILOT AND REVIEW
Police in Marshfield are asking for the public’s help identifying three people connected to a counterfeit cash investigation.
According to a notification from the Wisconsin Crime Alert Network, three unidentified suspects arrived on Sunday, Jan. 20, at a Marshfield convenience store in a vehicle that appears to be a silver Mazda CX-9, possibly a 2018 or 2019 model. The vehicle did not have any license plates displayed.
Police say the suspects entered the store after fueling the vehicle and allegedly passed two counterfeit $100 bills as payment.
Initially, two women entered the store. The woman wearing a black hat allegedly paid for the fuel and some small food items with the first counterfeit bill. The women then returned to the vehicle.
Several minutes later their male companion, who was operating the vehicle, entered the store and presented the second counterfeit bill as payment for additional food items, police said. The man was dressed in distinctive fur type hat and coat. The suspects were reportedly also observed entering a large retail store in the immediate area.
Police did not specify the name or exact location of the convenience store or the retail store nearby.
Anyone with information about the identity of these suspects should call Wood County Crime Stoppers at 1-877-325-STOP. Callers can remain anonymous.
