Springfield Police are looking for help finding those responsible for a recent rash of circulating counterfeit money.

Sangamon and Menard County Crimestoppers says a heavy black woman presented the fake bills to cashiers at two Springfield Dollar General Stores last week while two other people created distractions. They fled in a maroon four door Oldsmobile in each instance.

Anyone with anonymous information leading to an arrest could be eligible for a $1,000 reward. Call Sangamon and Menard County Crimestoppers at 788-8427, head online or text your tips. Type TIP 672 plus a message and send to CRIMES.
