Westport police responded to the Trader Joe’s at 400 Post Road East on Tuesday around 3:40 p.m. for a call that a customer used, what store employees identified as, a counterfeit $100 bill.
The store had been made aware earlier that day that men had used counterfeit bills at other Trader Joe’s locations in southern Connecticut, police said.
