The Fayette County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in identifying two suspects accused of passing fake money in north Iowa.
In a Facebook post, the department asks for help in identifying the male subject and a vehicle he used to commit a crime. This unknown subject and another white female with red colored hair have been passing off fake $20.00 bills at businesses across northeast Iowa, including in Waterloo, Dunkerton, Oelwein, Maynard and West Union.
Sheriff Marty Fisher says they may be driving a white Dodge or Chrysler vehicle and featured a photo in the Facebook post.
If you can identify or have information about this, please call the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office at 563-422-6067 Ex 0 and leave your tip.
The Fayette County Sheriff’s Office also says a horse suffered minor injuries after being struck by a car early Tuesday morning. Just before 5 a.m. , a deputy responded to a 911 call of a car vs. horse in the 5000 block of Palace Road, approximately two miles north of Oelwein. After further investigation, it was determined that a Ford Fiesta driven by 26-year-old James Fleming of Oelwein was northbound when he struck the horse in the traveled portion of the roadway.
Fleming was uninjured, but his vehicle is considered a total loss. The horse sustained minor injuries and was returned home.
