EUREKA -- For two times in as many weeks people holding yard sales have been the victims of poorly produced $20 bills.

The Eureka Police Department said the first report was June 18 from a yard sale on the 2300 block of A Street and the second report was June 25 from a yard sale on the 1400 block of Sixth Street.

”The victims state that an unknown dark-colored Suburban type SUV pulls up to the rummage sale and a 12-year-old boy gets out of the vehicle and uses the fake bill to purchase a few items,” said Suzie Owsley of the Eureka Police Department.

Police are warning anyone who plans on holding a rummage sale.

”The counterfeit $20 are very poor quality with paper that does not feel real,” Owsley said.
