INDEPENDENCE, Mo. (AP) – Authorities in two Kansas City area suburbs say they’ve received reports of fake movie money being circulated.

Police in Independence, Missouri, and Olathe, Kansas, said they’ve gotten several reports of the fake movie money being passed as real bills. They’re urging people and businesses to take a close look at the money when accepting cash for purchases.

Officials say the fake money closely resembles actual money and began turning up in the spring.

Olathe police Detective Brian Peters says two of the three people who used the bills there have been identified and charged. He says while the prop money looks real, it feels heavier than real currency and is also missing the security thread.
