More counterfeit bills located
MEXICO -- More counterfeit $20 bills have been passed in this area and they carry the same serial number(s) of fake bills seen last November.
Mexico Police Sgt. Roy Hodsdon noted, "We need to find out how they ended up in Mexico (area) and who is doing it?"
Three fake $20 bills were reported recently in Mexico. Back in early November, six other counterfeit bills were passed at businesses in Mexico and Rumford.
He noted that, to his knowledge, these counterfeit bills have not been appeared outside of Mexico and Rumford.
Hodsdon cautioned people accepting cash to be careful, use the grease markers and check for the security strips and water marks. He said one can also feel a difference with these fake $20 bills.
Anyone who gets one of these bills and has information on who is passing them is asked to contact the police department at 364-5686.
