MELBOURNE, AR (KAIT) – Counterfeit money has been spotted throughout Izard County.

According to the Izard County Sheriff's Department, a counterfeit five dollar bill was passed in Melbourne on August 5. Counterfeit bills were brought to a Melbourne bank for deposit on three separate occasions: a ten dollar bill on August 14, a hundred dollar bill on August 15, and twenty dollar bill on Tuesday.

The bank teller said the ten dollar bill felt strange and strip on the bill could not be identified. The twenty dollar bill had poor color quality and did not contain security threads.

 According to Sheriff Tate Lawrence, the one hundred dollar bill had the word "fake" handwritten on the back and likely came from Missouri.  Sheriff Tate said several counties in the area have reported counterfeit bill and that people should examine their money.
