Several area high schools are reporting counterfeit money turning up in their schools during athletic events recently.
St. Clairsville High School athletic director Kelly Rine reports $250 in counterfeit bills were passed at last week's St. Clairsville vs. Buckeye Local football game. The counterfeit bills were used at the concession stand.
Fake money has also turned up in St. Clairsville Monday night during St. Clairsville's sectional volleyball and sectional soccer game. Rine is not sure what event the counterfeit money was used since both events happened the same night. The fake money has been turned over to Huntington Bank.
Shadyside High School was hit with $280 in fake money during last week's football game. In addition, Wheeling Park High School is also reporting $280 in counterfeit money was collected for a band booster raffle. Bridgeport High School also took in $70 worth of counterfeit bills during a volleyball game on Oct. 9.
Another case of counterfeit money has been uncovered in the Ohio Valley.
This case was in Shadyside, Ohio. This time through the concession stand at a football game.
According to high school principal John Haswell, the concession stand, ran by the band parents, had $280 worth of counterfeit bills come into their stand.
The money was four $50 bills and four $20 bills. Each of the sets of bills had identical serial numbers.
The money was discovered to be counterfeit when it was processed at the First National Bank in Shadyside.
Haswell said the people who paid with the counterfeit money didn't just get away with using them, they received change and food in exchange for the fake money. So the band parents lost out even more.
The counterfeit money is currently at the First National Bank and will be investigated.
Another case of counterfeit money was found last week when a woman tried to use a fake $20 bill at a store in South Wheeling and then more than $250 was passed through a raffle for Wheeling Park Band Boosters.
