Between Sept. 30 and Oct. 4, the Florence Police Department received multiple reports of counterfeit $100 bills being passed in the community. Upon further investigation, the bills in question appear to be identical and likely from the same source, which remains under investigation.
Despite an ongoing investigation, in light of the community impact, Florence Police want to put this information out to assist citizens in identifying these bills.
The bills in question have the blue band coming off of them and there is no hologram on the right side. An actual image from the counterfeit bills we are seeing is provided.
The community is encouraged to be diligent in looking out for these bills and to contact the Florence Police Department at 541-997-3515 with any questions or to report any suspicious bills.
