The Cottonwood Police Department is putting the word out of play money being circulated in the area. The bill is a rendition of a $100 bill and is clearly marked with the words “PLAY MONEY,” where the serial number would normally be. Due to the high volume of purchases this time of year, bills like this may easily go unnoticed by retailers. Police would like to remind retailers to be vigilant and inspect currency used to make purchases. If you have information regarding this crime or have encountered a bill similar to the one pictured, contact law enforcement.
