On Monday December 16, Deputy T.A. Fouch responded to the 7-11 store on Shadyside Road in the outskirts of St. Albans after store personnel reported having received two (2) fake $20 bills sometime during the day. The cashier said he was very busy during his shift and he believes the suspect took advantage of the opportunity. Store managers are reviewing surveillance footage in an attempt to determine who passed the bills.
So far this Christmas Season, there have been several counterfeit bills passed in Kanawha County, in no one particular area. We encourage all store personnel to be on the lookout for suspicious currency. Denominations to date have been $10’s, $20’s, $50’s and even $100’s.
Anyone with information is asked to contact the Kanawha County Sheriff’s Office at (304) 357-0169. Anonymous tips can be submitted by phone at (304) 357-4693 or on the Kanawha Sheriff’s Office website at kanawhasheriff.us.
