LINCOLN–(KFOR May 13)–Two cases of counterfeit or fake bills being passed in Lincoln this past week.

One was reported May 9 at the Casey’s off of 40th and Adams, where a fake $100 bill was used by someone to make a purchase the previous evening. Lincoln Police say in reviewing security video, the clerk saw that a Native American male, about 20-to-25-years-old, wearing a black jacket, gray shirt with his hair pulled back had used the bill to make a purchase.

Something similar happened on May 10 at a home near 51st and “J” Street, where the 33-year-old victim said a white man and white woman in their 30s to 40s used a fake $20 bill at her garage sale. Captain Todd Kocian on Monday said the woman with the man soon returned to try and buy something with a $20 bill that had “In Props We Trust.”

Kocian said the victim didn’t accept the bill and the woman took off with both bills, leaving in a black Chevy Z71 pickup heading north. The investigation is ongoing.
