An 18-year-old male says he was given counterfeit money in exchange for a pair of basketball shoes Wednesday evening after being contacted through the popular buy and sell app Let Go.
The male told police he was given counterfeit bills for a pair of size 10.5 gray Jordan basketball shoes during a transaction at Moriah Baptist Church on Mia Avenue.
The suspect, who goes by Devin Boyd on the app, handed over the money then took off running behind the church before the seller could count the bills. Each bill had the word “replica” written on it, the report says.
Police tagged four $20 and five $10 counterfeit bills all containing the serial number KP58247039Y.
Boyd is described as a thin black male, approximately 6-feet tall and 18-years-old. He was last seen wearing a black coat, blue shirt, blue jeans and red and white Jordan basketball shoes, according to the report.
Police responded to a similar incident in February involving an Xbox sold on the app.
