Phony Money a New Year's Eve Downer

(La Porte, IN) - Police would like to know who put a damper on a New Year’s Eve celebration in La Porte.


A counterfeit $50 bill was used at around 7 p.m. to pay for a Domino’s pizza and tip the delivery driver. Police say the driver didn’t realize the bill was fake until he returned to the pizza restaurant on J Street. 


The customer told police she didn’t know the $50 bill was counterfeit or how she acquired it. In addition, the bill did not feel like real currency and contained foreign markings like Chinese-like lettering.


The case is being given to the U.S. Secret Service Office to investigate further, police said.
