Report: Counterfeit Money Used At Putnam County Fair

6/21/17 – 7:40 A.M.

Investigators in Putnam County are looking into reports of counterfeit money at the Putnam County Fair. WLIO-TV reports a vendor told sheriff’s deputies three people were trying to use fake fifty-dollar bills Tuesday afternoon. The vendor also told authorities the people involved threw away the rest of the fake money.

Deputies took the people in for questioning but didn’t find any fake bills on them. Investigators let the group go, and they left the fair. After the group left, a deputy found a fake bill in a trash can.
