A counterfeit bill was discovered recently at the , according to reports.
A clerk in the department called police after a resident tried to make a payment with a $100 bill on Friday, Sept. 7. The clerk told police that she checked the bill with a detection pen and ran it through a scanner, and that it showed signs of being a fake.
Police spoke with the resident, who said he got the bill from the Chase Bank on Ford Road about a month prior.
An officer took the bill to a counterfeit money expert at Comerica Bank, who initially believed it to be real. However, after running several tests, she said that it was not valid.
A check with Secret Service further confirmed—via its serial number—that the bill was counterfeit. Police then turned it in to federal authorities.
