Dorchester Sheriff's Office Looking For Counterfeiters

Posted:
 CAMBRIDGE, Md.- Three hot dogs, three fifty dollar bills.  But these aren't your average fifties, they're fakes.

WBOC has obtained security footage from the Hot Spot restaurant just outside of Cambridge on Christmas Eve.  In the video, you can watch as three African-american men enter the restaurant to order their food.  But eyebrows were raised before the men even walked in the door.

The first thing that tipped off the owner here and the staff that something was wrong was when these three men parked their car out back next to the dumpster, instead of using one of the many parking spots out front.

The men went inside, and paid for their hotdogs in fake cash, according to the Dorchester Sheriff's Office.  They say this wasn't an isolated incident.

"We understand that there are numerous other spots that they hit.  At least one in Cambridge, Easton, and the outlets in Queen Anne's," said Lieutenant John Stitchberry.  Sheriff James Phillips says the department has several good leads in the case already.

Heidi Gambrill at Crabi Gras says these incidents have a major impact on small business.

"It could wipe us out; we could end up having no deposit that day; we could be in the hole.  We could have overdrafts," said Gambrill.

Police are asking anyone with information to call the Dorchester County Sheriff's Office.
