GRAND FORKS - Grand Forks Police said they have received several reports of fake $100 bills being passed off at local businesses recently.

The counterfeit bills look and feel similar to a real bill and may even pass the marker test, police said ina news release. There is a small symbol on the right and left side of the front of the bill that differs from real money, though.

Police said it's important to scrutinize any large bills and anyone who identifies a counterfeit bill should try to get as much identifying information about the suspect as possible, including a description and vehicle information. The news release stated not to detain the person, but to call police.

Police have collected images of a suspect and vehicle and plan to release the information soon. Anyone with information can call the department at (701) 787-8000.
