Counterfeit money found in Michiana


A stash of counterfeit money has been found in Elkhart.   What's unusual --- the phony bills were all in one dollar or five dollar denominations.

About 250 dollars in fake bills were found in a trach can at the Super Wash at 25062 County road 6 in Elkhart.  The manager turned the money in to police.  Police say many of the serial numbers were the same on the phony bills.  Police also say the paper was poor quality.

 Police want businesses such as fast food restaurants and gas stations to be especially vigilant in checking for counterfeit money.
