Waterford — Police are looking for a man who they say attempted to pass counterfeit $100 bills early this morning at two local businesses.

Police said they responded to the Hess gas station and Sam’s Mart, both on Route 1, for a report that a man was passing fake money.

The suspect purchased small items and then paid for them by using the fake $100 bill, police said. At one location, the store clerk refused to complete the purchase.

The suspect is described as a Hispanic male with a thin build. He had a pony tail and a thin chin-strap beard. He was wearing a red Raptors or 76ers baseball cap, plaid shirt and a black North Face jacket.

Anyone with information is asked to contact Officer Thomas Viens at (860) 442-9451 or tviens@waterfordct.org refer and refer to case # 2013-02294. All information will be kept confidential.
