(WBNG Binghamton, NY) On the evening of July 25th, 2 suspicious persons entered the

Manley's Mighty Mart on Main St. In Binghamton.

They each made a small purchase and then paid for their items with

counterfeit 10 dollar bills.

Binghamton police say they are seeing more and more counterfeit

bills in the area.

They warn area clerks to be careful if they get one.

"If they suspect someone is passing a counterfeit bill by all means

give us a call. Do not stop them, do not try and apprehend them by

yourself. Give us a call and keep the bill if you can and we'll handle it",

says Sgt Becky Sutliff of the Binghamton Crime Stoppers division.

The first suspect appears to be a white male, 40 years old, 5 feet 10

inches tall with short hair and glasses.

The second suspect is described as a white male in his 20's, 5 feet

11 inches tall and was wearing a basketball jersey over a white t-shirt

and a baseball hat.

Police ask if you have any information to contact the Binghamton

Crime Stoppers Anonymous tip line.

That number is 1-866-304-TIPS.

A reward of up to one thousand dollars is offered for any

information that leads to an arrest.
