Breaking News- Look Out For Counterfeit $20 In Gloucester

The Gloucester Police Department has just reported that a counterfeit $20.00 bill has been discovered in downtown Gloucester.  The police say that typically there are a lot of bills circulated quickly.

Please be on the lookout for a poor quality twenty.  The bill will feel more like paper than legal currency.  It is the bill with Jackson’s head in a circle;  the bill is darker.  Generally the counterfeit bills will carry the same serial numbers, so look for repetition.  If you turn up a counterfeit, immediately contact Gloucester police at (978) 283-1212.  If the perpetrator is in the store, call 911.
