Maybe cops should carry those little black markers on their belts near their tazer.
I really wish there was a picture of the actual bill, it would be interesting to see just how fake it looked. I wonder how old the officer was..

)our title bothers me, but I have to say, since when is it a cops job to determine whether or not a bill is fake, without equipment? I wasn't aware that a cop could arrest someone based on an eyeball test of a bill. If I were this person, id sue for false arrest.

It's sad our economy is so bad, that people are using their saved silver certificates to pay for things.
They wouldn't be out in circulation if not for that. Aren't the banks supposed to pull them as they come in...guess I need to do some research on that. They used to pull all incoming certificates out of circulation.
I've been finding a lot of all silver coins in change this past year. People are scraping the bottom of their piggy banks..
A clerk at Quik Mart, South Cannon Boulevard, notified police after the marker used to detect counterfeit bills didn't check as real.
"The front side of the bill was off center and it didn't feel like a normal bill, it did look to be counterfeit," officer Brock Horner said in his report.
