Counterfeit money keeps turning up
in Greene County.
A fake $100 bill was passed some time Tuesday at the Quick Stop Market on Snapps Ferry Road, Greeneville police Officer Nicholas Fillers said in a report.
The bill was discovered Wednesday in a deposit from the business at Andrew Johnson Bank.
The counterfeit bill was identified when a bank clerk was entering the deposit.
The store manager "did not know the time of the counterfeit transaction," the report said.
A counterfeit $10 bill was passed between Oct. 16 and 18 at the Quick Stop Market at 3635 Erwin Hwy., sheriff's Deputy Stacey Lawing said in a report.
The bill wasn't identified as counterfeit until money in the cash till was checked, the report said.
"The clerks did not know who brought it in," the report said.
A counterfeit $5 bill was passed in the last week at Dairy Queen on East Andrew Johnson Highway, Fillers said in a report filed Wednesday.
The Dairy Queen manager was not sure what day the bill was passed at the business, the report said.
All the counterfeit bills have been taken into evidence, reports said.
