Fake money

  • Friday, February 14, 2014

Numerous fake $100 bills are being passed around town. However, one local gas station clerk knew right away that one was fake when a customer tried to pass it off as currency.

The man who attempted to pass off the money told a responding officer that he tried to pre-pay for gas, but the clerk confiscated the bill, saying it was a fake.

The clerk told him to call the cops and make a police report. The clerk never indicated if he tested the money, he only told the officer it was in the store safe.

In addition, he said he was hanging onto the money and would send it over to the police department the next day. The officer advised the clerk that this was not how counterfeit money was handled. He said the money needed to be given to police and placed into evidence. The clerk finally agreed to turn the money over.

The victim, who was now out $100, said he got the money from a discount store where he cashed his paycheck.
