Piqua police are warning the public after they said fake money is being passed around the Miami County city.

According to police, the fake money being passed are fraudulent $100 bills that are marked in several places that they are for cinematic or motion picture use.

Piqua isn’t the only city that has dealt with the fake bills.

In January, Xenia police warned businesses and residents after they received multiple reports of fake cash being passed at area business, including Stan’s One Stop on West Second Street.

“It looked like a regular $100 bill, but on the back, where it said in United States Treasury of America, it said for motion picture use only,” Lori Britch, a cashier at Stan’s One Stop, told News Center 7 earlier this year.

Authorities in Montgomery County also have dealt with similar counterfeit money schemes recently.
