(Neb)-Counterfeit Bill Real After All
CHADRON - Businesses that handle currency on a regular basis have been told for many years they should use special markers that indicate if a bill is counterfeit, but always with the caveat that the markers aren't infallible.
That proved true in Chadron earlier this month. Chadron Police Sgt Jarvis Wallage says a $10 bill indicated by a marker as counterfeit was - after some investigation - found to be legitimate, so efforts to find the couple who'd used it to make a purchase were dropped.
Wallage also says that even with the false positive, it's still a very good idea to use the markers and other items that indicate if currency is real or phony.
