CANTON, OH (WOIO) - Fake $5, $10 and $20 bills started to show up in Canton back in May. Now they are popping up all over.

"A lot of times, it's smaller denominations, because it's not noticed as readily versus the larger bills," said Lt. Linda Brown with the Canton Police Department.

So far, more than half a dozen places in Canton have discovered the fake bills.

Someone just passed one at Stark County Jobs and Family Services. Although workers caught it while checking incoming cash flow, whoever is passing the phony money is still out there.

"It happens maybe a couple of times a year. The last one they found was maybe three months ago," said Kelly Lockhart with Stark County Jobs and Family Services.

If you know who is passing these fake bills, contact Canton Police at 330-489-3100.
