Employees say he came into the restaurant, ordered a drink and then went back outside into a motor vehicle where he was speaking to another person. He then walked over to the Bank of America ATM and was picked up by a different motor vehicle. The employees did some research and found a man with the same description was wanted by Norwood Police for counterfeit charges. Officer reports employee checked the money and believe there is a counterfeit $20 bill. Information was passed along to detectives and the money was taken into evidence.

I saw the pickup & remnants of the pickup's tail light this morning. I'd be furious if I was the truck's owner.

Had Cibo's staff dialed 911 right away MPD might have grabbed him. Good sleuthing, but call the police.
