TRUMANN, AR - Police in Trumann are urging merchants to be on the lookout for fake currency.  A $5 bill was bleached and then printed over to look like a $100 bill.

The bill was passed to a merchant and was discovered at a bank.  Police say an alert cashier could have spotted the fake by noticing the bill had security features of a five, not a $100 bill.
