A woman who used a counterfeit $100 bill to purchase Girl Scout Cookies is being sought by Omaha police.
Roni Gosch said she was helping her mother’s Field Club-based troop sell cookies Wednesday afternoon outside the Walmart at 128th and L Streets. A woman approached and said she wanted to buy five of the $4 boxes of cookies but had only a $100 bill.
Gosch, who works as a waitress, produced $80 from tips she had made that day so the Girl Scouts’ stand wouldn’t run out of change.
“At least the troop isn’t out the $80, but it’s getting kind of rough out there,” said Gosch, 23. “Last year, we had a couple of counterfeit bills, so we got those money-checker pens. We were in such a hurry to set up (Wednesday) that we forgot the pens.”jwirr, em77, Johnny Rash and 2 othersxynthee, oldandhappy like this"P.S. please if you get a chanse put some flowrs on Algernons grave in the bak yard.": Flowers for Algernon
