In the case of Osceola County, Sheriff Doug Weber acknowledged that they have seen some funny money in the county.  He declined to comment further, however, citing the fact that it is an ongoing investigation by the Osceola County Sheriff’s Office and the United States Secret Service.

In Worthington, police say there are reports of counterfeit $20 bills circulating in that Minnesota city.

A quick check of law enforcement agencies in the O’Brien, Sioux, and Lyon counties turned up no reports of phony currency being passed in the last few months.

Although no funny money has been found in his county recently, Lyon County Sheriff Stewart Vander Stoep says there have been incidents as close as Sioux Falls.

If you suspect that a bill may be phony you’re asked to call your local law enforcement agency.
