Two counterfeit one hundred dollar bills were circulating in Church Point and that has police warning the public to be on the lookout. The money was turned over to authorities after a local bank spotted them. Church Point Police Chief Albert Venable says the money appears to come from the same source.
Chief Venable hopes this discovery makes people aware to always check their money, something area businesses say they do on a daily basis. Owner of Vautrot's Mini-Mart in Church Point Cade Benoit says his employees check all denominations of money because this day in age anyone can make fake money with a home computer and printer. Benoit says all you can do is be prepared and be aware.
Chief Venable says the money has the serial number AE77665544B on it. If you think you're holding a fake bill, please contact police.
