DAYTON, Ohio (WDTN) — Police are investigating after a man tried to use counterfeit money at a Dayton market.

Police were called to the A&B Stop Rite Foods located at 4675 Hoover Avenue Friday afternoon to investigate a fraud complaint.

A store employee told officers a man came in and asked for a money order and gave him three $100 bills. The worker said the bills felt sticky and when he examined them closer they didn’t look right. He told the man he was going to have to call someone. The man then left the money behind and fled the scene in a dark Toyota.

The suspect is described as a 20 to 25 year old black male, 5’10” to 6’1″, 150-175 pounds, with long dreadlocks.

Police are examining surveillance footage from the store.
