A local business in Neshoba County became victim to a crime, when a suspect paid for food, multiple times, with counterfeit money.


The crime occurred on Saturday December 14th at Blakes



Seafood in Philadelphia. The counterfeit money that was used is known as “movie money”, which is known to pass as real money when tested, but later reveals itself to be fake.

 “Came up, hundred dollar bill, swiped yellow, cashier took the money and then came back a second time that day, same thing, came in, swiped yellow and whenever I was counting registers down that day I  noticed that had a black line across it, used the counterfeit detector again swiped over it, turned yellow for about five minutes, and the came back black line across it”, said  Blake Gordon, owner.
