A $100 counterfeit bill was passed at Design Solutions, 146 Elm St., New Canaan, Dec. 27, according to police.
A cashier told police at 11:18 a.m. that a female customer used a $100 bill to pay for a $3.73, according to the report. Since the store was "quite busy," the cashier told police, she accepted the bill but went to the bank right after to check if it was authentic. An employee at the bank told the cashier the bill was counterfeit, police said.
Police are investigating.
