The Willard Police Department is investigating its third report of a business receiving counterfeit currency in $5 and $20 denominations recently.

Chief Mark Holden encourages residents to "please proceed cautiously when accepting money."

"The bills have been marked with detection pens and have passed initial inspection," he said about the bogus bills. "Please refer to the security strips and other detection methods as counterfeit detection pens are proving unreliable."

Anyone who has received counterfeit bills or has information about this crime is encouraged to call the Willard Police Department at (419) 933-2561.
