More counterfeit money is showing up in the area. The latest report comes from Palo Alto County.
The Sheriff’s Office says a phony 100-dollar bill recently was passed at a business in Graettinger with the words “FOR MOTION PICTURE USE ONLY” on the front of the bill. Storm Lake Police found similar 50-dollar bills while executing a search warrant earlier this week… and 100-dollar counterfeit bills have been reported in Spencer and in the Iowa Great Lakes Area.
Authorities once again remind the public and businesses to be alert when receiving any bills, especially larger denominations. If a counterfeit bill is identified you should contact your local law enforcement agency immediately.
