Warning Of Counterfeit Bills

Jamestown, CA– The Tuolumne County Sheriff’s Department is warning businesses and the general public to be cautious of counterfeit $100 bills.

According to Sgt. Jeff Wilson, the Whistle Stop on Highway 108 in Jamestown received a fake $100 bill early Monday morning.

Deputy Lee Butler who responded to the call, discovered that the $5.00 bill had been  altered to look like a $100 bill that could easily be accepted without a close inspection.

Tuolumne County businesses and the public are encouraged to contact the Sheriff’s Office at 533-5815 if more counterfeit bills are discovered.
