Seaside Police Department have received three reports of counter-feit twenty dollar bills being passed sometime over the weekend at a local downtown businesses. Each bill had a different serial number which were: IF79478166C JJ20227331A GK06160805B
There are no suspects or suspect vehicles at this time. The bills were discovered in bank deposits and are being forwarded to the U.S. Se-cret Service.
One bill was of good quality but was missing the security strip. A sec-ond bill was of poor quality with poor color, a different feel to the pa-per. A third bill had already been forwarded to the Secret Sevice. The Seaside Police Department cautions all local businesses to take the necessary precautions when accepting bills and report any suspicious activity. As a reminder, the Secret Service no longer encourages the use of the anti-counterfeit pen as they are not effective with todays method of counterfeiting.
