Pine Prairie Police discover counterfeit bill


Managing Editor

PINE PRAIRIE - The Pine Prairie Police Department is warning residents to be on the lookout for counterfeit money.

Chief Todd Ortis said a local merchant realized he had a counterfeit $10 bill over the weekend. The bill had no watermark, was smaller than a legal bill and the quality of the paper was very poor and thin.

“Be careful and please be observant,” Ortis said. “We’re warning merchants to be careful of accepting this type of currency.”

If you have received an illegal bill or have information on the origins of this bill, please call the Pine Prairie Police Department at 599-2904.
