CLINTON, Island County – Sheriff’s detectives say they’ve seized $1,600 in counterfeit $100 bills from a Clinton home, and they’re warning businesses there may be more phony bills out there.
The Daily Herald reports that officers say the bills are good quality, with simulated watermarks and security features that look passable at a quick glance.
Local businesses are being urged to get counterfeit detection pens and screen any large bills.
