Bogus Bills Used to Buy Vacuum Cleaner 13 Apr 17

Hutchinson Police are investigating a purchase in which bogus bills were used to buy a vacuum cleaner at the local Walmart.

On Tuesday, an employee reported to police that an African-American man bought a Dyson vacuum cleaner valued at just under $260 with tax.

The suspect used five counterfeit $50 bills and one counterfeit $20 bill for the purchase.

The suspect then left the store, got into a black SUV, possibly a Cadillac Escalade, and drove away.

The investigation continues.
