Mayer AZ (August 23, 2017) – Late last week, the manager of the Circle K store in Mayer, 10068 Highway 69, reported that one of his employees received a counterfeit $100 US bill around 8:30PM on Saturday, August 12, 2017. The manager was still in the process of locating surveillance video of the transaction. This past weekend, the video was received and used to obtain still shots of the 2 suspects involved. The photos are being released with the hope someone can identify them.
In the photos, a white man and woman have been identified as the 2 involved in passing counterfeit currency. The top 2 photos show each suspect at the Circle K entrance. The bottom photo shows both suspects at the register.
The suspects apparently left in separate vehicles – possibly an SUV type and a passenger car that was light colored/silver.
