Counterfeit bills passed in Menlo Park

There were two attempts to pass counterfeit $100 bills in Menlo Park last week: on Thursday, Feb 24, at the Safeway supermarket in Sharon Heights Shopping Center and the next day, Feb. 25, at Peet's Coffee & Tea at 515 El Camino Real, near the Safeway market there.

Police have descriptions of the suspects that match in some respects, according to information provided by Nicole Acker, spokeswoman for the Menlo Park Police Department. Both suspects were white men wearing brown jackets and dark hats.

One of the descriptions puts the man between 25 and 33 years old and the other describes him as tall, wearing a gray hooded sweatshirt and blue jeans, and with an unknown logo on the side of his baseball cap.

At least one of the $100 bills, and probably both, is in police custody as evidence, Ms. Acker said.
