LEE CO., GA (WALB) -

Lee County investigators said that numerous counterfeit $100 bills were used at the Walmart on Ledo Road this past weekend. 

Video footage shows three people, one woman and two men, investigators say used the fake bills. 

"These suspects, they come in, they make small amount purchases and then you end up giving them real currency in exchange for counterfeit," said Investigator Brian Johnson.

Anyone with information regarding the identity of the suspects is asked to contact the Lee County Sheriff's Office at (229) 759-6012 or CrimeSTOPPERS at (229) 436-TIPS.
