Biloxi Police need help identifying a suspect wanted for using a counterfeit $100 bill at Popp’s Pizzeria.

A man wearing a reflective, construction-type vest paid for pizza at a restaurant with a counterfeit bill and took his change but left without his pizza, a detective said.

The man walked in to Popp’s Pizzeria about 6:30 p.m. Sunday and ordered a large pizza, Biloxi Police Investigator Nick Sonnier said. The restaurant is on Cedar Lake Road at Popp’s Ferry Road. After paying for his order with a bogus $100 bill, the man took his change and walked out.

“He knew what he was doing,” Sonnier said.

The police department released pictures from surveillance video Thursday in hopes someone will recognize the man and let police know who he is.

Anyone with any information is asked to call the Biloxi Police Department Criminal Investigations Unit at 228-435-6112 or Biloxi Police Dispatch at 228-392-0641, or email the department’s Criminal Intelligence Unit at ciu@biloxi.ms.us.
