Winsted Police Department received a report of a counterfeit $100 bill passed at a local business Nov. 17.
Police Chief Justin Heldt said the counterfeit bill looks like the most recent version of a $100 bill, but the blue line through the center is a different hue of blue, and the front surface of the bill is glossy rather than matte. Also, when the bill is turned over, the back is upside down.
Heldt reminds businesses to be aware of the possibility of counterfeit bills, and to call the police department right away at (320) 485-2600 if they suspect that a counterfeit is being given to them.
