Man uses counterfeit $100 to purchase chocolate milk from Village Pantry



A man purchased chocolate milk and other items with a fake $100 bill at Village Pantry on East Winslow Road, Bloomington Police Department Sgt. Dana Cole said.

A Village Pantry attendant told police early Sunday morning a man attempted to make a purchase with a $100 bill with Chinese writing on it.

“Don’t be a little bitch,” the suspect told the attendant.

Cole said the attendant feared he might be injured, so he completed the transaction: TruMoo chocolate milk, Nesquik chocolate milk and other items that couldn’t be made out from the receipt.

The purchase amounted to $13.51.

Cole said the man is not connected to an Indianapolis man BPD arrested last week for a series of counterfeit $100 bills.

The attendant told police he thought the suspect lived in an apartment complex nearby. The suspect, who is a frequent customer, walked out of Village Pantry after buying the items.

Surveillance footage showed the suspect to be a white or Hispanic male with black hair and a black goatee, Cole said. He wore a blue hooded sweatshirt, blue jeans and a gray flat bill hat.
