Counterfeit Money Found in Starke County

Counterfeit $20 bills are circulating around the Starke County area.

Carla Musial from Demotte State Bank told WKVI that they’re the best that she’s seen. A Starke County merchant got one this weekend. While the bills look real, they will mark brown, not yellow, and the hologram is missing along with glitter on the bottom of the bills and a strip.

Police will be investigating this issue and all merchants and members of the community are urged to watch for these bills making their way through Starke County. If you have any of these types of bills, call the Starke County Sheriff’s Department at 772-3771.
