Oakwood Police are asking for the public's help in identifying this woman, who is believed to have used counterfeit bills at the Wal-Mart store in Oakwood in August.
OAKWOOD - One suspect is in custody and another remains at large after using counterfeit bills at the Wal-Mart store in Oakwood.
Oakwood Police Cpl. Danny Sridej said store employees reported the counterfeit bills last month. He said authorities soon realized there were a number of similar incidents across the state.
"We discovered that the same two individuals were passing out similar counterfeit bills at the Target in Flowery Branch and at other areas in Atlanta," he said.
Sridej said 39-year-old Christopher Cook of Columbus has been arrested in the case but the female seen with him in surveillance photos from the Wal-Mart store has not been identified.
"We are hoping that someone can recognize the picture of the black female to help identify her so that we can put the pieces together," he said.
He said the U.S. Secret Service is also investigating.
