400 block of Foothill Boulevard in La Cañada Flintridge, a woman described as Hispanic, 5’3” tall, 120 to 130 pounds and wearing burgundy medical scrubs entered the Trader Joe’s and purchased a pack of pineapple juice. She had reportedly inquired about seeking employment at the store as well as making a purchase. When it was time to pay for the item, she allegedly stated, “Oh man my piggy bank is empty, can I use a hundred dollar bill?” The employee took the $100 bill and inspected it and suspected it to be a forgery but accepted it against his better judgment. He gave the woman change and she exited the store. The employee took the bill to his manager who confirmed it to be a forgery. The manager looked through all of the $100 bills that had been collected throughout the day and found another forgery. The manager contacted the Trader Joe’s in Pasadena and found that store also had taken a fake $100 bill from a woman matching the suspect that had entered the La Cañada store.
