BLOOMFIELD TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WXYZ) — Bloomfield Township Police are looking for a suspect who tried to use a counterfeit bill in a McDonald's drive-thru on Jan 10.

Around 10:30 a.m., officers responded to the Mickey D's on Telegraph Road for a complaint about the bill. The restaurant manager reported that on Jan. 9, a Black woman with black and blonde curly hair, a stud nose ring and driving a blue Ford Flex used the bogus $20 bill for a soda.

She received a little more than $18 in change. On Jan. 10, the woman returned to the location and tried to pass another fake bill, but was recognized by an employee.

The investigation is ongoing.

Anyone who recognizes the suspect's description is asked to call police at (248) 433-7755.
