A counterfeit $100 bill was found Thursday, Oct. 22 among the cash receipts at the Trader Joe’s store, police said.

At some point that day, the bill was given to an unknown cashier. The store has a policy that cashiers don’t test questionable bills but call over a manager to do it, but the cashier didn’t notice that the bill was fake.

The manager, counting money after the store was closed, noticed that the paper wasn’t quite right and used a special pen to determine the bill was fake. All cashiers were questioned, but none remembered taking the money.
