3 suspected of passing counterfeit $100 bills in Indiana County arrested; 4th suspect sought

WHITE TOWNSHIP, Pa. — Pennsylvania State Police in Indiana County are alerting businesses of counterfeit $100 bills passed in the area on Sunday.

A police spokesperson says since about 3 p.m., troopers have been sent to four separate businesses on Oakland Avenue in White Township after the counterfeit bills were passed. The businesses troopers responded to were:

  • Advanced Auto Parts
  • Aroma Joes
  • AutoZone
  • Harbor Freight Tools

There were at least two other attempts to pass counterfeit $100 bills, also at Oakland Avenue businesses. One attempt happened at Dunham’s Sports and another at Kohl’s.

During each transaction, police say the suspect passed the counterfeit $100 bill for payment of a low-value item or items.

Police say three men suspected of passing the counterfeit money have been arrested. Unspecified charges are pending against the men.

They’re still searching for a fourth suspect who is described as a white, Hispanic man about 19-20 years of age with medium-length dark hair. He was seen on surveillance video wearing a blue Calvin Klein sweatshirt, blue sweatpants, and dark-colored shoes.

Anyone with information about the counterfeit bills should contact Troop A, Indiana, by calling 724-357-1960.
