PARSIPPANY — Parsippany-Troy Hills Police Patrol Officer P. Kolln responded to Rite Aid, 480 North Beverwyck Road, for a person who purchased a Green Dot prepaid Visa Card with counterfeit currency.
Upon his arrival he spoke to the employee who advised him that a black male in his mid-twenties, wearing a baseball cap, a black long sleeve shirt and blue jeans entered the store and purchased a $200.00 prepaid Visa Card, with a $1.95 purchase fee, with three.
The unknown suspect was given his change and then left the area in a silver colored sedan. The employee did not realize the bills were counterfeit until after the male left the area.
This incident remains under investigation and anyone with information is asked to contact the Parsippany Police Department’s Investigative Division at (973) 263-4311.
