Police, Deputies Investigate Counterfeit Money
WATER VALLEY – There’s funny money floating around the county and law enforcement officials are warning businesses to be on the lookout for counterfeits, particularly $5 and $100 bills.
Sheriff Lance Humphreys and Water Valley Police Lt. Rick McCuan said that several businesses in Water Valley have received the bogus money.
“The quality is poor,” Humphreys reported, adding that cashiers needs to examine all bills.
“Most of what I have seen is pretty obvious. The color is off, margins are not registered and even the bill sizes may vary,” Humphreys advised.
“If you look at the bills, they won’t pass inspection,” McCuan said.
Along with the counterfeiting reports, McCuan reported the following additional law enforcement activity within the Water Valley City limits during the past week:
• Made four arrests for disorderly conduct;
• Made an arrest for simple domestic assault;
• Made an arrest for simple assault;
• Took a report of trespassing;
• Took a report of stalking;
• Took a report of simple assault;
• Took a report of vehicle crash;
• Issued two citations for disturbing the peace, loud music in a motor vehicle;
• Issued 14 traffic citations.
