Sheriff Blaise Smith advises the public that counterfeit money has been found in Bayou Vista.
Deputies responded to a call this afternoon in which counterfeit $20 bills were thrown out of a vehicle in Bayou Vista. The deputies collected as many as they could, however, it is believed that some of the bills were picked up by citizens.
These bills are fake. They look like $20 bills but are counterfeit. It is against the law to possess or attempt to use counterfeit money.
The public is advised to turn them in as soon as possible. If you picked some of the bills up, simply call 337-828-1960 and one of our deputies will come to collect them from you. We appreciate the public’s assistance in this matter.
