Counterfeit Cash Collected At Popeye’s

They may love the chicken from Popeye’s, but they wanted it, without having to use real money for it. FDL Police were called to Popeye’s Chicken on W. Johnson St. Tuesday afternoon, at 4:40 p.m., for a report of counterfeit money being used. Police arrived to find a fake $20 had been taken in by the staff at Popeye’s. There are no suspects, although surveillance video is being reviewed. While the use of counterfeit money has been low recently in the community, Police warn local businesses and residents to keep an eye out for fake money, and report any currency that looks suspicious to local authorities.
