Putting A LIDS On Counterfeit Bills
Mankato police are looking for the young male who tried to pass a counterfeit $100 bill at a River Hills Mall business on Monday. A clerk at LIDS discovered the bill was fake because it had no watermarks in the paper. The clerk gave the phony bill back and the male left. Police say they plan to look at videotape to see if they can identify the suspect.
