Beware counterfeit bills!


Millen Police Chief Dwayne Herrington displays a counterfeit $5 bill that a local citizen turned in after receiving it in change from a Statesboro fast food restaurant. The bill is smaller and the paper lighter than its real counterpart. When tested with a counterfeit pen, black marks appear. Barely visible yellow marks would appear on a real bill when marked with a counterfeit pen.
