A local Chadron business discovered counterfeit money over the weekend.
According to the Chadron Chamber of Commerce:
Over the weekend, a Native American female and male purchased several items at the local Bomgaars store. Among the cash was a suspicious $10 bill. When the cashier marked the $10 bill it turned black, which should not happen to a legitimate bill. The mark should have stayed highlighted yellow. The ten dollars is suspected to be fake and has been confiscated and submitted into evidence by the Chadron Police Department.
The female was described as being 5'1", heavy set with long black hair, wearing a black tank top. The male was 5'3" to 5'5" tall with some scruffy facial hair wearing a black flat bill hat with a red "76" on it. The vehicle is unknown at this time.
The local law enforcement encourages small business owners to be vigilant in protecting themselves from counterfeit by marking suspicious bills with an anti-counterfeit marker.
