Rehoboth Beach Police recently responded to three separate complaints involving counterfeit money at two businesses.
Police were called to Funland on two occasions, Friday, June 23, at around 7:45 p.m. and Sunday, June 25, at around 3:15 p.m., for reports that the business was in receipt of counterfeit 20 dollar bills. The business had been provided three counterfeit bills on one occasion and six on another. The details as to when and where within the business the bills were passed has not yet been determined.
In addition, on Sunday, June 25, at around 12:30 p.m., police responded to Kohr Bros., located in the first block of Rehoboth Avenue, for a report that that business was also in receipt of a counterfeit 20 dollar bill. It is believed that the bill was given to the business for services rendered on Friday, June 23, between 11 a.m. and midnight.
All of the counterfeit bills had separate and distinct serial numbers, however, they were missing two noticeable security factors that police are asking businesses to be aware of: the portrait watermark and the security threat, identified in the above photo.
