Officials in Yavapai County are asking the public to help identify a two people suspected of spending counterfeit money recently at business in Mayer.

D'Evelyn said the two people seen in surveillance photos show a white man and woman inside the store. Witnesses told police the pair left the store in separate vehicles. One was possibly an SUV type and the second a passenger car that was light colored or silver, said D'Evelyn. 

D'Evelyn said this is the second instance a fake $100 bill has been discovered recently. On August 16 owners of the Cornville Market reported receiving a counterfeit $100 bill. That case is still under investigation and officials are still waiting for information which may link these two incidents, said D'Evelyn.
