A suspect wanted for using counterfeit cash at a Westhampton 7-Eleven earlier this month was hardly inconspicuous.

A Crime Stoppers flier listed the suspect only as a woman, but photos released by Suffolk County and Southampton Town police show a suspect with close-cropped bright red hair, a black headband, a gray one-piece over dark-colored leggings and a powder-blue hoodie.

Police said the suspect handed 11 $10 bills to the cashier at the 7-Eleven on Mill Road at about 6 a.m. on May 15, but fled the scene in a silver BMW when the cashier determined them to be counterfeit, police said.

Police are now asking anyone who recognizes the suspect to call Crime Stoppers at 800-220-8477.

All calls will be kept confidential.
