Chesterton Police said that two counterfeit $100 bills were passed at the Kmart at 750 Indian Boundary Road on Saturday.

According to police, around 8 p.m. a male subject purchased a $195 “MoneyPak” card, a can of soda pop, some chewing gum, and a computer disk, paying with two $100 bills, a $10 bill, and two singles. The clerk advised that a marker check indicated both $100 bills to be genuine but that, later in the evening, she began to have doubts, and on checking further observed the water mark inside the two $100 bills to read “USA FIVE.”

The clerk described the suspect as a black male, around 6’ 2’’ in height with a thin build, very short hair, wearing a dark colored shirt and jeans. The CPD took the two counterfeit bills into evidence.
