DENISON, Texas -- Police say counterfeiters are making their way through Denison.

At least two bogus bills were passed at the CVS drug store and the Lone Star convenience store on FM 120 near US 75.

At the Lone Star, a man with Oklahoma plates purchased scratch-off lottery tickets with a fake bill.

At the CVS, a customer asked the cashier to break a $50 dollar bill. The cashier soon realized the bill was fake, but not after making change.

"If you're given some money and it just doesn't feel right, it doesn't look right, then stop and take the time to make sure as best you can that it is good currency," advised Denison police spokesman Lt. Mike Eppler.

The CVS customer was later questioned by police. No arrests have been made in either case.
