Counterfeit bills | Police Blotter

Officers responded to a state Route 410 store to the report of a customer trying to use a counterfeit $20.

October 21

Civil Dispute: Officers responded to the report of harassment. Officers spoke with the reporting party who said someone had been “pounding” on her front door. She told officers she had found a stray dog earlier in the day and had dropped it off in a park in Sumner. Afterward, she received harassing text messages from an unknown person and thought the person at her door was the same one messaging her. Officers called the number that had been sending text messages to the reporting party. The person on the phone told officers the day before he sold the dog to the reporting party and was confused when he received a call from Puyallup Animal Control after the dog was found. He told officers he wished she would have just returned it instead of leaving the dog in the park and that he would come and pick the dog up from the shelter.

Counterfeit: Officers responded to a state Route 410 store to the report of a customer trying to use a counterfeit $20. Officers spoke with both the employee and the subject regarding the money. The employee told officers, the subject had grabbed two candy bars and a bag of chips and preceded to walk around the store eating them. When asked about the money, the subject became aggravated. The officers were unable to determine if the bill was in fact counterfeit or not. It was later determined that the $20 was not a fake. Nothing further at the time of this report.
