Sherman Police are looking for a forgery suspect who allegedly tried to pass a counterfeit bill at a convenience store earlier this month.


In a social media post published Thursday, the department posted an image of the suspect from August 6. The suspect is believed to have entered the One Stop gas station in the 1300 block of North Grand seeking change for a large denomination bill, which was not authentic.


“A black male suspect entered the store and asked the clerk to break a $100 bill,” Sgt. Brett Mullen said in a previous interview. “The clerk immediately realized that the bill was counterfeit and contacted the police. That suspect then left the scene, presumably on foot.”


No other suspect information was included in the department’s post. If caught, the suspect is likely to face a third-degree felony charge for forgery of a government document.


Those able to identify the suspect or those with knowledge of the incident are asked to call Sherman Police Det. Riffe at 903-892-7341.
