Counterfeit money surfacing in Williston

WILLISTON, N.D. — Williston police say an unusually large amount of counterfeit money has shown up in the city this year.

Thirteen bogus bills have been discovered by area businesses and banks. Nearly half of the discoveries happened last week.

Lt. Mark Hanson says it's the highest number of fake bills he's seen in a single year. He says most are $20 bills, and the quality is very good.
