Secret Service determines monies not counterfeit in Westborough case

Westborough – The Westborough Police Department has released information about an incident over alleged counterfeit money:

On 1/28/13, at approximately 10:58 AM, a 43 year old Fisher St. resident came to the Westborough Police station to report that the Citizen’s Bank at 32 Lyman St. Westborough had confiscated 14 one hundred dollar bills as potential counterfeit. Four other one hundred dollar bills were not suspect.

The resident reported that he cashed his payroll check at Sovereign Bank at 70 E. Main St. and was depositing it into his own bank in Julio’s Plaza.

The Westborough Police contacted the Secret Service and an investigator determined that the 14 hundred dollars bills were not counterfeit. They were an older denomination which made the bank teller question them.

The Secret Service is returning the money to the resident.
