The Devils Lake Police report that a counterfeit 50 dollar bill was passed Thursday morning at Cenex West.

Police say the clerk quickly noticed that the bill was not authentic. Police were called to the store and following their investigation determined that the man who spent the bill was not trying to pass counterfeit money but simply didn’t realize the bill was a fake.

Police believe the man may have received the bad bill in change in Carrington. Police have sent the bill to the Secret Service office in the Twin Cities.
