Police Searching For Man Who Used Play Money To Buy Winning Lottery Ticket

Ohio authorities are looking for a man they say used play money to buy a winning lottery ticket. The incident occurred Thursday at a Giant Eagle grocery store, where the unidentified suspect used fake $100 bills to get change, buy cigarettes and purchase a lottery ticket, according to the Boardman Police Department. The lottery ticket proved to be a winner, earning the suspect $100 — in real money, police say. The bogus bills were clearly marked, “United States Play Money,” police say. There’s no word on why the cashier didn’t notice. Have you ever been given a counterfeit bill?
