BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) -

The East Baton Rouge Sheriff's Office is searching for two black men who used counterfeit money at the Circle K on Siegen Lane in April.

According to reports, a man entered the store on Monday, April 13 around 11:30 a.m. and bought a $300 money order. The suspect used three counterfeit $100 bills to buy the money order. Around 12:30 p.m. a second man came to the store and also bought a $300 money order. The second suspect also used three counterfeit $100 bills for the item.

Detectives say all six counterfeit $100 bills lacked the security features the real money would have, contained the same serial number and appeared to have been printed on the same paper.

The first suspect is a black man with short braided hair wearing a red and white striped shirt and dark colored pants. The second suspect is a black man with a short haircut wearing a white shirt, blue jeans and eyeglasses.

Anyone with information on the suspects' identities or the incident is asked to call EBRSO at (225) 389-5000 or Crime Stoppers at (225) 344-7867.
