Fake $20's Go Around Sparta
Over this past weekend several Sparta businesses fell victim to counterfeit $20 bills.

It’s believed all the counterfeit bills reported thus far were passed sometime between Friday the 26th and Sunday the 28th.
No suspects have been identified and anyone with information regarding this crime is urged to call the Sparta Police Department or the U.S. Secret Service.
