FORT PIERCE, Fla. - A possibly transgendered, thong sporting person may have used counterfeit cash to pay for delivery pizza in Fort Pierce, according to recently released police records.
What's more, the Sunday case of the possible bogus bucks provided for Papa Johns pie could be related to a second incident the same day. The second case involved allegations a woman tried to pay for delivered Domino's with suspected phony funds.
At 10:05 p.m. Sunday, police went to a Papa Johns in the 2500 block of South U.S. 1 where a delivery driver said he brought pizza to an undisclosed address between 8:17 p.m. and 8:40 p.m.
"(The driver) stated that a black male wearing baggy pants with a thong hanging out of them answered the door," a report states. "(The driver) stated that the male looked like a female and may have been transgendered."
The individual paid with a $5 bill, a $10 bill and a $20 bill. The driver returned the money to Papa Johns after finishing his deliveries.
The manager said as he counted the drivers' money, he suspected the $35 was counterfeit. Police, however, couldn't immediately verify whether the funds were fake.
The toppings, size and quantity of pizza in the order from Papa Johns, which promises "Better Ingredients. Better Pizza," wasn't specified in the police report.
Meanwhile, within minutes of the officer being dispatched to Papa Johns, another officer went to a Domino's Pizza in the 2700 block of South U.S. 1 on a possible counterfeit cash case. A driver said that on a delivery a woman tried to pay with a $5 bill, a $10 bill and a $20 bill.
The money, he said, felt "thin," lacked watermarks and appeared counterfeit. The driver confronted the woman, who snatched the cash and returned the food.
A detailed breakdown of the order from Domino's, which was founded in 1960 and opened its 9,000th store worldwide last March, also wasn't given.
