A man dressed as a woman is being sought for questioning in connection with the attempted purchase of a gift card with counterfeit currency.

Last Friday at 7 p.m., the man entered a CVS store on State Road 312 and tried to buy a $300 gift card with three $100 counterfeit bills, deputies said. The clerk discovered the bills were counterfeit and advised the man that they appeared to be fake.

The man then fled the area without the gift card or the counterfeit bills, deputies said.

The man was described as black and dressed as a woman. He was wearing a tight white shirt with midriff showing and multi-color bottoms, with long black hair and fake eyelashes.

Anyone with any information concerning the man's identity is asked to call Detective Hank Miller at the St. Johns County Sheriff's Office at 904-209-3999 or Crime Stoppers at 888-277-TIPS (8477).
