Public’s help sought to identify woman using counterfeitbills

A reward is being offered to help investigators identify a female suspect who attempted to use counterfeit money on multiple occasions.

In a recent incident last week, the suspect used a counterfeit $20 bill at a Larose truck stop, which marked the fourth time the woman attempted to pass a fake bill at that location.

Investigators are asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspect. Anyone who can identify her, or anyone with information on this crime, 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 TipSubmit Mobile application or online at

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.
