FLORENCE, Ala. (WHNT) -Florence Police say counterfeit bills are circulating around the Shoals.

According to investigators, one woman was caught on camera buying hundreds of dollars worth of clothes, but now the store is out the money.

Florence Police say after going on a shopping spree at Belk in Regency Square Mall, the suspect is ready to check-out.

The cashier examined the cash, but still takes the money for the purchase.

Detectives say the bills were actually five dollar bills “washed” and re-printed as 100 dollar bills.

In this week’s Shoals Area Most Wanted, John Grissom is wanted by Russellville Police on a grand jury indictment for theft of property.

Russellville detectives say Beverly Miles is also wanted for theft of property.

Finally, Florence Police investigators want Steven Hagood in jail for public intoxication, driving without a license, and harassment.
