Counterfeit Cash Caught In Missoula, Investigation Ongoing
Missoula police are seeking information about two women who attempted a wire-transfer on Monday in Missoula. Police public information officer Travis Welsh explains why:
“Two adult females entered the location of the 2100 block of Brooks Street to complete a wire transfer of money,” said Welsh. “The two women completed the transfer however it was soon discovered the money they provided was counterfeit. Fortunately, the transaction was cancelled. However, two women are still at large.”
A large number of the bills involved in the transfer were counterfeit and Welsh says the public should be on the look out.
“Both are white females, one is anywhere from 5’3” to 5’5” and approximately 300 pounds,” said Welsh. “She has dirty blond shoulder length hair and is about 50 years of age. The second female is about 5’6” and has brown hair. She is between 35 and 45 years of age and is also said to have a tattoo on the left side of her neck that is possibly a butterfly.”
Anyone who recognizes these two women are asked to contact the police department or call crimestoppers at 721-4444. Welsh says that information about this case will be communicated to the Secret Service’s counterfeit currency team.
