The Oconee County Sheriff’s Office is seeking the public’s help today in its investigation into counterfeit money that was recently used at the Seneca BI-LO location.

The deputy met with an employee of the store who told the deputy that an individual purchased food and a beverage from the deli at the store during the early afternoon hours of May 28th.

The investigation was turned over to the Criminal Investigations Division.

The individual the Sheriff’s Office is seeking to identify is a white male who deputies believe could possibly be in his early ‘30’s.
