Counterfeit Bills Investigation 17 Jan 13

Counterfeit bills have been showing up in several area communities in recent days, and an investigation is underway. The most recent incident was at a grocery store in Henderson, where 4 counterfeit $20 bills were used by an unidentified woman. The bills were soon discovered to be phony because of the lack of a watermark and a difference in coloring. Two of those bills reportedly matched fake bills that had been passed in Le Sueur recently also, and counterfeit 100s have turned up in Le Sueur too, as well as in Arlington.
