      Bogus $5 bill turns up in Cheboygan

      Cheboygan Police are warning area businesses to be on the look out for counterfeit cash.

      Police in Cheboygan are warning area businesses to be on the look out for counterfeit cash.

      Police say fake $5 bill turned up at the Family Dollar store Tuesday.

      "We don't see a whole lot of these small bills," says Cheboygan Police Patrolmen Dan Frazier. " Usually it is larger bills."

      Frazier said the bill did not have a watermark and was not on the type of paper the Treasury Department uses.

      Police have alerted the U.S. Secret Service about the case, as the Secret Service handles issues of currency.
