Incident: Counterfeit Alert
Location: City of Hallsville
Date: November 5, 2010
Case No. 2010-0410, 2010-0411
The Hallsville Police Department wants to warn area businesses about counterfeit money.
The Hallsville Police Department has taken several reports this week from local businesses that have taken counterfeit money. The counterfeit bills have been $20.00 bills.
Merchants can purchase counterfeit pens to help detect these bills. However, in some cases, real bills are bleached and used to make bills of higher denominations. These bills will “pass” the pen test. It is important for merchants to be aware of all the security features in bills of different denominations.
In anyone has any information about these crimes, they should contact the Hallsville Police Department.
