Counterfeit money circulating in Ecru

By Pontotoc Progress

According to Ecru Police Chief, Randy Wilson, two counterfeit $100 bills have been collected-one from Sonic in Ecru and one from a private individual who owns a lawnmower shop in Ecru.

He said there is another business who will surrender a bill later today.

It is suspected that the same person passed both bills because the serial numbers were identical on both. Police said store owners need to be aware and cautious when accepting all money. Be sure to use the counterfeit marking pens and report any attempts to pass false money to the Ecru Police Department.

This offense will remain under investigation and more details will be released when possible.
