CHICO, Calif. - The owner of Shubert’s Ice Cream in Chico says there’s been a spike in people trying to pay with counterfeit bills.


Kasey Pulliam Reynolds says this week, two men walked into the Shubert’s Ice Cream Chico Mall location, they waited until the customers left the store then tried to pay for $60 worth of merchandise with a counterfeit $100 bill.


She says when the cashier refused to accept the bill, they aggressively began arguing with her.


She accepted the bill in order to get them out of the store and they left.


Pulliam Reynolds says she has seen a spike in crime against small businesses in Chico and business owners need to find ways to stand up and combat theft.


“We all work hard, we spend hours and hours and hours laboring over our businesses, and people cannot just walk in and take whatever they want,” Reynolds said.


Chico police came and took a report, Pulliam Reynolds says police know who the two men are, but they’re still on the loose as of Friday.
