Police investigating counterfeit money in Quincy

QUINCY (AP) — Police in western Illinois are trying to determine the source of counterfeit U.S. currency that has turned up in Quincy.

The Quincy Herald-Whig reports (http://bit.ly/13S20x9) police say there have been a string of counterfeit bills passed at businesses over the last few weeks. Authorities say nearly $300 in fake bills were passed at six businesses between Aug. 25 and Sept. 4.

Lt. Dina Dreyer says police "don't usually see something of this magnitude." She says police think one suspect is involved and they've issued an arrest warrant.

Adams County State's Attorney Jon Barnard says it's rare for his office to prosecute counterfeit cases.
