The Wayne County Sheriff's Department has received multiple reports of counterfeit $20 bills being passed at store.

The counterfeit bills are reported to pass the counterfeit detector pen test. The watermark, however, is not visible when holding the bills up to the light. The bills being passed also all bear the same serial number.

Investigators have also learned the counterfeit bills are also being passed in surrounding counties as well.

Merchants are being asked to take extra caution when taking money, and to look for the watermark that should be visible when held up to the light.

The investigation is continuing, and officials have released video of a potential suspect taken at a store in Buckatunna. The video can be viewed by clicking on the screen at the top of this page.
