MURRELLS INLET, S.C. (WCSC) - The Georgetown County Sheriff’s Office released a surveillance photo Tuesday of two women they are trying to identify.

Deputies say the video came from the Hurricane Liquor store in Murrells Inlet where a clerk told deputies the pair presented three $50 bills to make a purchase. The clerk said he tested the bills and found them to be counterfeit.

The clerk kept the bills and the two women left the store on foot, deputies said. The store turned the bills over to the sheriff’s office as evidence.

Anyone who recognizes them is asked to call the sheriff’s office at 843-546-5102.

EDITOR’S NOTE: An earlier version of this story incorrectly reported, based on the original Facebook post from the sheriff’s office, that the store clerk returned the counterfeit bills to the customers. The sheriff’s office has confirmed that the clerk did not return the bills and their original Facebook post was updated to correct that detail.
