Manhattan Beach police are hoping someone recognizes a man caught on tape paying for a beach bag with a counterfeit $100 bill.
The incident happened at 8 p.m. March 5 at Diane’s Swimwear, 3292 Sepulveda Blvd., according to a Manhattan Beach Police Department press release.
A man – described as white, around 25 years old, 6 feet tall, weighing 170 pounds, with brown hair, brown eyes and tattoos on his hands – first asked a clerk for assistance in selecting a beach bag, officials said.
“When the clerk rang the item in the register, the subject presented an obvious counterfeit $100 bill. As the clerk hesitated with the sale, the subject became verbally aggressive and demanded change,” the press release states.
Fearing for her safety, the clerk went ahead and produced the $72 in change, police said.
Anyone with information about this incident and/or the subject involved, is urged to call the MBPD tip line at 310-802-5171.
