Police looking for counterfeit bills


Charleston Police are investigating multiple reports of counterfeit bills being passed at multiple businesses.

The Charleston Police department is encouraging all businesses and their employees to pay close attention to cash payments and  to mark any and all bills that come in through patrons, especially all 10's and 20's to help ensure they are not counterfeit.  Should you encounter a counterfeit bill please keep it and contact the Charleston Police.  Any descriptive information on the individual using the bill would be helpful.


Anyone with any information regarding these counterfeit bills and those responsible for the manufacture of these bills, is encouraged to contact Det.
