Washington state police were looking for the shameless scoundrel that used a counterfeit $100 bill at a child’s lemonade stand.
The fully grown man was caught on camera wearing sunglasses while he passed the fake bank note to Jeremy, 11, at his makeshift Everett concession stand earlier this summer, police said.
The cheapskate then put the squeeze on the unsuspecting kid when he asked for exact change, forcing the boy to dip into his allowance to hand over $85 in legal tender, according to officials.
Jeremy didn’t know he had gotten a lemon of a big bill until he tried to spend it at a gas station, cops said.
The pathetic scam left a sour taste in the mouths of investigators
“While our detectives work hard to bring closure to every case, this case struck a particular chord with them, and they want to do everything they can to get justice for Jeremy and catch this counterfeiter,” cops wrote on Facebook.
