Counterfeit money appears locally

MARQUETTE — Counterfeit money is making its way around several local locations.

Forsyth Township and Marquette City police say they are currently conducting an investigation into one-hundred dollar counterfeit bills.

The batch of bills are marked with the number one-hundred and fifty above the one-hundred dollar sign on the lower back right corner.

Also, the one-hundred dollar figure on the front of the bill does not change color in light as is typical with legitimate money. These bills are passing the ink pen test.

Citizens are urged to immediately contact police if they are in possession of a bill.
