Counterfeit Money

Two recent incidents of counterfeit money passed:

1. On January 12, 2011 a 20 dollar counterfeit bill passed at Sunoco located at 150 Pelham St. Methuen Ma. Three males in a white 90's Dodge Durango with no front plate pulled up to the pumps. There were three young males total, and there was a heavy set light skinned male operating the vehicle.
