Counterfeit bills appearing in county

Sheriff Randy Waters encouraged citizens and businesses to be vigilant after incidents of counterfeit currency being passed locally have increased recently.

The Sheriff reported one local business recently discovered three counterfeit $20 bills passed to them, but were unable to identify the transaction where they originated.

“With the holidays coming up, I want to remind everyone to keep a close eye on the money they take in,” Sheriff Waters said. “Reports of counterfeit money being passed have increased in the past few weeks both here and in surrounding counties.”

“If you encounter any counterfeit bills, or see suspicious activity, please don’t hesitate to contact the authorities.”
