West Bridgewater, MA- Police are looking for two men who have been passing fake $100 bills at four different locations across town.
Police say the counterfeit money was a bleached $1 bill, however it was transformed to look like a $100 bill.
Investigators believe the counterfeit bills were used in West Bridgewater along with Taunton and Jamestown.
Police say the counterfeit bills were passed to a store clerk in Jessy's Liquors. Surveillance cameras show the store clerk checking the bills with a detecting pen before accepting them.
All the bills had the same serial number and appeared to be old. Investigators believe that the men took a real $1.00 bill and bleached them to removed the ink. Police say it it can pass the test of the detection pens because the banknote paper is authentic.
The two men that were observed on surveillance cameras at Jessy's Liquors were also seen at three other businesses where counterfeit bills were passed.
