WESTFIELD, Mass. — Police are seeking help in identifying a man they say used counterfeit money at a western Massachusetts Walmart store.

Westfield police on Monday said the suspect used between $500 and $1,000 worth of fake $50 bills at the store last month to purchase items that could easily be resold.

Police released several surveillance images on Facebook of a suspect with a short beard, gray winter hat, brown coat and black hooded sweatshirt . Police also released an image of his car.
