Marion police are investigating a series of counterfeit $100 bills that were passed at businesses there on Aug. 5.
The fake bills pass traditional “pen marker” tests, but are counterfeit, according to a news release from the town.
A suspect car being sought by police is red or maroon with no front tag. It has chrome door handles, sunroof and is possibly missing paint on top.
The town described the suspects as two black males, each about 6 feet tall, with mustaches and goatees, wearing camouflage shorts, tennis shoes, white shirt and “Cardinals” baseball caps. They are possibly in the company of two other males.
Business owners and clerks are warned to be wary of anyone attempting to pass $100 bills, and to report suspicious activity to police.
