Two quick-change theft reports were taken in Bowling Green this weekend.
At 9:30 p.m. Friday, police were called to a restaurant in the 1000 block of North Main Street where a theft of $40 was reported.
The employee told police a man entered the restaurant and wanted change for what appeared to be two $20 bills. The employee said she was trying to keep the change in her hands until she could see the bills. The man was hesitant to hand over the bills and requested the change first. At that point, he reached across the counter and grabbed the change, leaving the fake bills on the counter, according to the Bowling Green Police Division report.
The bills were marked “Motion Picture Purposes” on both sides, according to the report.
The man was described as a white male with red hair, a beard the black framed glasses.
At 4:41 p.m. Sunday, police were called to a restaurant in the 1050 block of South Main Street, where the theft of $50 was reported.
The manager told officers that an employee took an order of two $3 bundle meals from a white female and a Black male. The female paid with a $50, and changed her mind while the employee was making change. She went to pay with a $20 then again changed her mind how she wanted to pay.
The couple took their change and food and left, according to the report.
The employee said she thought she had counted change correctly but when the registered was checked, it was short $50.
The restaurant was going to try to access its security footage, according to the report.
