The Borger Police Department and Crime Stoppers are asking citizens to be on their guard when it comes to counterfeit bills.
Lt. Anthony Griffin of BPD said that over the past couple of weeks, the department has taken several reports in reference to counterfeit $20 bills being passed again in the Borger area.
â€śSo far, these counterfeit bills have been reported as being passed at five local locations,â€ť he said.
Anyone who receives currency that is suspected of being counterfeit is encouraged to contact BPD at 806-273-0930.
Those with information in reference to these counterfeit bills and/or incidents involving counterfeit currency are asked and encouraged to contact Crime Stoppers at (806) 274-6371. Any and all callers will remain anonymous.
Crime Stoppers asks that anyone calling in with a tip leave a working contact number so that a representative of Crime Stoppers may contact them back in regards to reward information in the event that the information proves to be relevant and useful to the incident being investigated.
The organization offers cash rewards ranging from $50 up to $1,000 for relevant information in reference to investigations of ongoing crimes and criminal activity, as well as fugitives from justice (wanted persons).
