OXFORD, Ohio — Counterfeit $100 bills are circulating around Oxford, police say, and the perpetrators appear to have a sweet tooth.

According to WCPO media partner the Journal-News , three stores in Oxford selling ice cream or similar products were given fake bills over Labor Day weekend.

Police say the same thing occurred in the days leading up to the holiday at the McDonald’s located on S. Locust Street.

In two of the cases, police say, the suspect was a white male. In another case, police say an African-American couple purchased a small amount of ice cream using a counterfeit bill.

“We called United Dairy Farmers and told them to be wary,” Oxford Police Sgt. Jon Varley told the Journal-News.
