Counterfeit $20 bills found in area

Counterfeit $20 bills have recently been circulating in Findlay, Fostoria and Tiffin, law enforcement officials are reporting.
“The counterfeit $20 notes are printed on bleached genuine paper and will feel like genuine currency. The ink used makes the counterfeit note appear darker than a genuine note. The notes are primarily detected at the local banks as stores make their night deposits,” the Tiffin Police Department posted on its Facebook page.
Serial numbers on confiscated bills are DC35796137D, JC65756165D, DC75796165D, JC35796137D and CC65756173D.
Those with information are being urged to contact the U.S. Secret Service Toledo Resident Office at 419-259-6434. If calling after business hours, listen to the entire message and follow the instructions to speak with an agent.
