• Two men used a counterfeit $100 bill to pay for Chinese food Jan. 25 at Panda Express, 27 Western Ave., police said. The men ordered food at 3:11 p.m., paid for it with the bogus bill, took about $87 in change and left without the food, Cmdr. Erman Blevins said. Police say the men are both described as black and around 25 years old. One wore a black jacket while the other wore a gray jacket, Blevins said. Police have since turned the fake bill over to the Secret Service.
