Claxton, GA (WTOC) - There's more money circulating in our area, but its not a good thing.

Claxton police got six calls of counterfeit fifty dollar bills Wednesday night and Thursday from stores or fast food places. Police tell us each of the clerks remember an identical couple making purchases with the bills or asking to make change. Police think the two used real five dollars bills bleached and reprinted.

"It's kind of easy to get change for a fifty without drawing attention like a hundred will do," said Chief Edward Oglesbee, Claxton police.

Oglesbee says he's heard reports of fake fifties in other communities. If you know anything about the case call claxton police or your local authorities.
