Counterfeit Bills Alert

In the past month and a half, the northwest Ohio and southeast Michigan areas have been inundated with counterfeit $20 and $50 bills.  The suspects are mainly targeting convenient stores and fast food chains; however, they have also been identified as passing bills at big box stores.  Bowling Green Police are asking that local businesses stay vigilant when taking in cash and encourage the use of marking pens to identify counterfeit bills.  If in doubt, please notify the local police immediately.  Clerks are encouraged not to give the bills back to the individual and to notify police immediately of any suspicious activity.

If any local business is notified by their bank that they have received counterfeit bills with their deposits, please notify the police and attempt to narrow down a time frame of when the bill was taken in.  Bowling Green Police are working with area law enforcement agencies but we need local business’ help to stop this trend.

If there are any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact Det. Brian Houser at 419-352-1131.
