Island County sheriff’s detectives say they’ve seized $1,600 in counterfeit $100 bills from a Clinton, Wash., home. They’re warning businesses there may be more phony bills out there.

The Daily Herald reports (http://is.gd/6UPiiy) 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.

Officers serving a search warrant Thursday also found methamphetamine and marijuana as well as computers, storage media and other equipment used to make the phony money.
