Police warn of counterfeit cash being passed around in Kalamazoo

07-26-16 Counterfeit bills

KALAMZOO COUNTY, Mich. — Police are encouraging people to use caution following the discovery of counterfeit bills being passed around the area.

Four cases  of counterfeit $20 and $100 bills are being investigated, according to a release from Kalamazoo Public Safety.

Police encourage people to look at their cash closely because wording on the fake bills can be easily missed at first glance. The words “for motion picture use only” are printed on the bogus cash that was circulated.

No suspects have been identified.

In July, police in Norton Shores warned of similar bogus bills being passed around the Muskegon County area. Those bills also had ‘for motion picture use only’ printed on them.

If you have any information, call the Kalamazoo Department of Public Safety at 337-8139 or Silent Observer at 343-2100.
