According the Calaveras County Sheriff Department a small collection of counterfeit $20 dollar bills have been received by multiple businesses in Copperopolis. A report has been taken, the money has been collected and subsequently turned over to investigations.
At this time there has not been a press release issued regarding what businesses should be looking for to identify the counterfeit money. However, one business that received the money stated that the watermark of President Jackson located on the front of the bill near the upper right hand corner seemed to be missing.
The Copper Gazette will update as new information is received.
