Counterfeit Bills Turn Up in Ardmore

7-10-06 A new kind of counterfeit bill is popping up all over in Ardmore. Now the Feds are getting involved.

Authorities from Oklahoma City to Dallas have been investigating cases just like this.

The crooks take a five dollar bill, bleach it, and then reprint it to resemble a 100 dollar bill.

The latest showed up at Bancfirst downtown last week.

In the end, police say the costs come back on taxpayers.

Investigators say because the money is a real bill, it's hard to detect.
