Milan police are investigating the second incident of counterfeit money being passed at Walgreens since February.
On Wednesday, Capt. Chris Johnson said two $20 bills were discovered Sunday evening at Walgreens, where the fake bills were found while staff members counted money from a cash register.
The bills, he said, have “for motion picture use only” printed on them in a font similar to real cash.
“The font is very close,” Johnson said. “If you’re in a hurry and you’re a busy cashier, you’re not going to scrutinize every bill.”
“Back in the spring, we had a rash of these,” Johnson said.
The bills, called “prop money” because they are used in movies, are sold legally online.
Police continue to investigate. A store camera recorded the image of a suspect, he said.
