Counterfeit money found in utilities payment

Law enforcement officials were asked to open an investigation on Tuesday after utilities employees realized that money used by a customer to pay her bill, was actually counterfeit.

Officers with the Lawrenceburg Police Department were dispatched to Lawrenceburg Utility Systems, 25 Public Square, just after 11:00. They learned that the counterfeit $50 bill had been included in a payment that had been made by a customer earlier.

Although officers attempted to contact the customer, they report that they were unsuccessful at that time. The matter remains under investigation.
