The Alexandria Police Department is asking for the public's help to crack counterfeiting crimes in the area.

The department has taken reports of $100 counterfeit bills being passed at two different convenience stores in the city.

The $100 bills were passed in exchange for a small purchase and a large amount of change was returned.

At this point in the investigation, police believe two male suspects were involved at two locations.

At about 3 p.m. today, Tuesday, the police department issued an update on the investigation, noting that the department is attempting to identify the men in the surveillance pictures for questioning. Police now say the men do not appear to be together.

The first suspect is described as an Asian male, in his early to mid 20s, 5-feet, 6-inches to 5-feet, 7-inches tall, wearing a baseball cap and a sweater.

The second suspect is described as an Asian male, 40 to 50 years of age, wearing glasses and a black jacket with white stripes on the sleeves. The jacket has a large patch on the front and the lower back part of the jacket is white.

If you have any information or recognize the men in the surveillance pictures, you're asked to contact the Alexandria Police Department at (320) 763-6631.
