Counterfeit Bills in Louisville!!

The Louisville Police Department is warning local merchants and
citizens to be on the lookout for counterfeit $100 bills. Some bills have already been passed and an arrest was made earlier this week. The fake bills were passed and attempted to be passed at  two local restaurants and one retailer.
