A woman went through an east Madison fast-food drive-thru paying with counterfeit bills three times in the same day, according to police.
The Madison Police Department said a woman used fake $20 bills to purchase inexpensive food items at Wendy's on East Washington Avenue on Wednesday afternoon. The woman, driving an older red SUV, made three separate purchases within an hour.
The manager going through the cash from the till found the fake bills and called police, according to the report. The manager said the restaurant's protocol is to ink test large bills, but the three bills that were accepted were not tested.
The woman is described as white, in her 20s to 30s, with long dirty blonde hair and a tattoo on her upper right chest.
Two of the fake $20s had the serial number JE58590236C; the other bill had the number JD95368601C, police said.
