Counterfeit money circulating in Decatur
The Decatur Police Department is urging all businesses to pay close attention to money they receive after an increase in illegitimate currency circulating through the city. Some of the money has the words "replica" and "play money" written on the bills. The police department also received reports of counterfeit $100 bills that are actually $10 bills.
Police recommend the use of UV light as the most accurate way to detect counterfeit money. If you receive or find any type of illegitimate currency, contact the Decatur Police Department at 256-341-4660.
