JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Jonesboro police made two trips to the same store in one day after employees reported counterfeit money.  

An employee at Dollar Tree, 2917 East Nettleton, told police the store received two counterfeit $20 bills around 3 p.m. on Friday.

Later in the day, Jonesboro police officer Garrett Thomason went back to the store in regards to more counterfeit money.

According to a police report, a store employee told Thomason a black man and woman came into the store to purchase items with fake $20 bills.

Those bills reportedly matched the bills from the earlier incident.

Employees told police the suspects left in a black Honda Civic.

Anyone with information should contact Jonesboro Crimestoppers at 935-STOP.
