Now showing: Motion picture bills appearing in Trumann

TRUMANN, AR (KAIT) - The money belongs in motion pictures, but police say those who try to use it belong in jail.

The Trumann Police Department says someone is circulating counterfeit bills at area stores.

The bills, known as "motion picture" money, look like real cash except for the words "For Motion Picture Use Only" printed on them.

Detective Chad Mason says the department is actively investigating two cases involving the funny money.

He strongly urges stores and merchants who receive the fake bills to immediately notify the police department at 870-483-6423.
