JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A crime so nice, they allegedly tried it twice. Our crime of the week is a double-dip of counterfeit cash.

Jonesboro police are trying to identify two suspects accused of using fake $20 bills.

In a police report, JPD said a man and woman went into the Kum and Go on North Church street earlier this month and used the fake money.  

The report states the man went in first and bought a couple of items with a $20 bill. Shortly after, the clerk realized it was counterfeit.  

The report continued, saying a few minutes later a woman came into the store asking the clerk to give her change for a $20.  

The clerk noticed right away the bill was fake and questioned the woman about it. She told the clerk that the first gentlemen gave her the fake cash.

It’s a case of he said-she said, but JPD says it's a crime.  

If you can make identify either one of these suspects it's worth some money from Crimestoppers.
