Moab City Police Department Sgt. Bret Edge said the passing of the bogus bills remains under investigation — and cautioned local businesses to be vigilant when accepting large denominations.
“We do not know the identity of the individuals who passed the counterfeit currency ... please instruct your employees to test any large bills for authenticity prior to accepting them for payment,” Edge said. “Several companies make counterfeit detection markers that can be used to detect whether or not currency is authentic. Google ‘counterfeit detection pens’ and you’ll have a plethora of options available to purchase.”
Anyone with information should call MPD at 435-259-7525.
