The Craig Police Department is asking citizens to be on the lookout for counterfeit money being passed around Northwest Colorado.

A Wednesday news release from law enforcement cautioned that officers have received recent reports of fraudulent $20 and $100 bills.

“The notes we have reports on are missing watermarks, color-changing ink, and holographic strips,” according to the release.

Additionally, the questionable bills had “distinctive stamped markings, slightly blurry printing, and a distressed printer paper feel.”

Anyone who suspects a counterfeit bill is asked to contact CPD at 970-824-8111.
