FAIRFIELD — A couple used counterfeit bills to buy $780 worth of merchandise from Victoria’s Secret Monday and then tried to return the items later that same day.

The couple, which used fake $100 and $50 bills to buy the items earlier in the day, returned around 4 p.m. to try to return the goods. The employee didn’t have $780 in the drawer and gave the woman back $350 — using the same counterfeit bills passed earlier by the couple. According to the report, the woman looked at the bills, and said, “These are fake.” When the employee said she was going to call police, the unknown man and woman left the store.

Police are investigating and took the remaining counterfeit bills as evidence.
