Just a couple weeks after some counterfeit money showed up at the U of I, it popped up again in Piatt County.
This time a man was trying to pass off a fake $100 bill at a gas station in Monticello when employees became suspicious.
The man got nervous and left when questioned because a police officer happened to be in the store. The man was later arrested.
Whether this has anything to do with the other funny money showing up around the area is still unknown.
