Public’s help sought to identify suspect caught using counterfeit bill

A reward is being offered to help identify a male suspect who used a counterfeit $20 bill at a local convenience store. Investigators learned an unknown black male subject entered a convenience store located on Crescent Avenue in Lockport just before noon on Sunday, January 10 and used a counterfeit $20 bill to make a purchase.

The cashier discovered the bill was counterfeit moments after the subject left the site. A surveillance camera captured an image of the suspect at the cashier’s counter.

Anyone who can identify the suspect is asked to contact Crime Stoppers Bayou Region at 1-800-743-7433 or by texting "GIVEATIP" plus your message to 274637. Tips can also be submitted using the Tip Submit Mobile application or online at www.crimestoppersbr.org.

Tipsters will remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward up to $1,000 in cash if the information given leads to an arrest.
