LIVINGSTON, TX (KTRE) -

The Livingston Police Department is seeking the public's help in locating a man and woman who tried to pass counterfeit money at a retail store on Tuesday.

According to a press release, Livingston Police officers were dispatched out to one of the town's retail stores at about 1:45 p.m. in regard to a man attempting to pass counterfeit money there after he had been dropped off by a blue and white Ford truck.

While the officers were investigating, dispatch received a call from a convenience store in the town about a man and a woman attempting to pass off counterfeit money to buy fuel. When the LPD officers arrived on the scene, the suspects had already fled the scene in an older model Ford pickup that matched the description of the truck seen at the retail store.

The man was captured by an outside security camera standing by the truck. The woman was wearing a pink shirt as she stood at the front counter.

“The Livingston Police Department is asking for assistance in the identity of these suspects and the whereabouts of the suspect's vehicle,” the press release stated. “If you have any information on this crime call Crime Stoppers at (936) 327-STOP or the Livingston Police Department (936) 327-3117 and ask for Detective Leon Middleton.”

All callers will remain anonymous and may be eligible to receive a cash reward of up to $1,000 if the information provided leads to an arrest or grand jury indictment of a felony offender.
