Police: Counterfeit money used over the weekend in Delaware

REHOBOTH BEACH, Del. -- Counterfeit money used at establishments along a Delaware boardwalk has led police to investigate.

The News Journal reports that Rehoboth Beach police spokesman Lt. Jaime Riddle says they responded to three complaints from two businesses between Friday and Sunday in which counterfeit money was received in payment.

Riddle says Funland was hit in the afternoon on both Friday and Sunday and that three fake $20 bills were received in one incident while six such bills were in the other.

Riddle says it's not clear when or where the bills were received within Funland.

Riddle says around 12:30 p.m. Sunday police responded to a Kohr Bros. when it reported receiving a phony $20 police believe was accepted on Friday.

Riddle says the counterfeit bills lacked the portrait watermark and security thread.
