Kountze P.D. reports counterfeit currency in circulation

According to the Facebook page for the Kountze Police Department, counterfeit money is being circulated throughout the community, and police need assistance finding the perpetrators. Clerks of every local business are encouraged to check all money received carefully. If counterfeit bills are acquired, KPD suggests keeping the money and calling local authorities, as identifying the person(s) handling the fake currency is essential. 

Restaurants (including Sonic), banks, dollar stores, and other local businesses have been targeted. Thus far, $20 bills have been the only denomination reported to be counterfeit, but all bills should be scrutinized until this matter is resolved.

The Kountze Police Department can be reached at 409-246-5101. Any local resident or business affiliate with information is asked to share pertinent knowledge immediately.
