Counterfeit Money Passed In Longview

      Longview police are warning merchants and the public to be on the lookout for fake money being passed at area businesses. Police are investigating "23" cases of fake cash passed in Longview since January 1st. The fake money has mostly turned up in "20's" and "50's" passed to businesses.

   The bills have a lighter "yellow green" color and lack the distinctive water mark, or a security strip. Police usually investigate only 2 or 3 cases like this per month, so 23 is giving them cause to believe someone is printing their own money locally.
