Police seek identity of woman using counterfeit $50 bills

BELTON, TX (KXXV) - Police have released surveillance photos of a woman using counterfeit $50 bills at several Belton businesses. They are hoping the public can help them identify that woman.

In the past month, police say more than 120 counterfeit $50 bills have been passed, mostly at fast food restaurants and convenience stores. A woman around 30 to 40 year of age, with tattoos on her right wrist and upper right arm, was seen on surveillance video using counterfeit bills.

On April 14, she was seen using a counterfeit bill at the CEFCO store in Belton, located at 601 E. 6th Ave. She was driving a small black SUV.

Two days later, a woman matching the same description passed a counterfeit $50 bill in Belton at Little Caesar's Pizza, 2411 N. Main St. Witnesses say the woman had dimple piercings in each check and a tattoo on her right wrist.

Police say pens used by many businesses to detect counterfeit bills do not work on these bills because they are copied onto legitimate $1 bills after a bleaching process. The counterfeit bills being passed are referred to as “small-head 50s”, older style $50 bills in production from 1985-1990, which lack the security features of bills printed after these dates.

Anyone with information about this case or the identity of the woman is asked to call the Belton Police Department at (254) 933-5840 or text tips to 254-217-6764.
