BURNET, Texas -- Police said counterfeit $100 and $50 U.S. Treasury bills are circulating in the Burnet area.

Authorities warned that commonly used counterfeit detector pens will not work with these bills.

Police cautioned merchants to check each bill for the appropriate security features, specifically the security strip that runs vertically up one side of the bill, and a faint image of the portrait to the right of the larger image.
