U-M police investigating 2 reports of counterfeit money found on campus

By Paula Gardner

Two incidents of "funny money" were reported on the University of Michigan campus last week, and in both cases the counterfeit bills were found near cafeterias.

According to incident reports from the Department of Public Safety, the first incident happened on April 5.

In that case, a fake $20 bill was used to pay for items in the cafeteria serving the University Hospital Emergency Room. It was reported to police early on Friday.

The second incident happened at the Ross School of Business. A staff member told police at about 11 a.m. Friday that a fake $100 bill was found near a cafeteria couch on April 4.

Both investigations are pending, thought it's unclear whether they are connected.

Time to start paying attention to what you receive as change. Ive received fake ones from drive thrus in Kalamazoo before. Its not pleasant and the business will deny having robbed you.

When you say 'cases' in that context, it almost seems like you're talking about suitcAses or something of the like.
