Counterfeit Bills Surface At Several Local Stores

Counterfeiters are at work once again in Cookeville. Police say officials at U.S. Bank reported that they had received five counterfeit one-hundred dollar bills from area businesses in the overnight drop box. The bills came from Advance Auto Parts, Claire's, Rue 21, TJ Maxx, and Peebles -- all of which are located in the area of South Willow Avenue and West Jackson Street. At least two of the bills had the same serial number, but other than that, police did not say what caused them to be suspect. Detective Sgt. Tim Terry is investigating.
