Jeers to whoever is passing counterfeit $5, $10, $20 and $50 bills around the area.

Most are $20 bills and most are high-quality counterfeits that can't easily be detected without a special marker.


The Detroit Lakes Police Department is working with the U.S. Secret Service and the White Earth Tribal Police department on the case, which involves more than a dozen bills passed in the area since the counterfeit money started showing up in the region last month.
