Placer officials seek ID of woman allegedly passing bogus bills

bogusbillssuspect.jpgbogusbills.JPGPlacer County sheriff's detectives are asking for the public's help in identifying a woman accused of passing counterfeit bills throughout the county.

The woman (pictured) was captured on surveillance videos in different businesses where she passed bogus bills, according to a Sheriff's Department news release. Officials said the bills (pictured) look authentic and have a stripe printed on them, so that when a clerk holds the bill up to a light source, the stripe and watermarks are visible. In this case, however, the stripe and watermark are clearly printed on the back of the bill.

Anyone with information about the woman is asked to call Detective Jim Hudson at (530) 889-7855. To remain anonymous and be eligible for a cash reward, call Placer County Crime Stoppers at (800) 923-8191, or go to the website at
