Fairfield police warn businesses of counterfeit bills
Fairfield police are warning local businesses to be on the lookout for counterfeit money that has been used in several shops.
Officials say at least five businesses received fake $100 bills within the last month, including the Fairfield University Bookstore.
Sgt. Suzanne Lussier says high-tech digital and laser printers are making counterfeiting a lot easier.
The suspect who passed the fake bills is described as a short man with facial hair. He was seen driving a white SUV, police say.
The fake bills will be passed to the U.S. Secret Service, which investigates counterfeiting.
