FARGO, N.D. (AP) — Fargo police are looking into several reports of counterfeit money, and say they have made one arrest.
Authorities say there have been eight reports this month of bogus $20, $50 and $100 bills being passed at fast food restaurants, bars and liquor stores. Police are asking local business owners to take security precautions when accepting cash.
Sgt. Mark Lykken says police arrested a man over the weekend for allegedly trying to use a fake $50 bill at a bar.
Police in West Fargo arrested a woman last week on suspicion of possessing counterfeit bills, after a traffic stop. Police Detective Greg Warren says it's not yet known if there is a connection to the Fargo cases.
The Secret Service is working with Fargo police in the investigation.
