On Monday night, a manager at the BP on West Washington Street came across a counterfeit $100 bill while she was counting money at the end of her shift, according to a Sandusky police report.

The bill was dated 1985 and passed a counterfeit pen identification test, but a bank later confirmed it was fake, the report said.

The following day, Perkins police learned of a similar complaint from the previous evening, according to a Perkins police report.

A clerk at the Perkins Avenue Friendship Food Store said a man entered her shop around 7 p.m. Monday and tried to pay with a $100 bill she was sure was counterfeit.

The clerk told the man she couldn’t accept a $100 bill, so she returned it to him and allowed him to pay with a $20, the report said.

Officers plan to review surveillance footage from the store. The incidents remain under investigation.
