JONESBORO, Ark. (AP) -

Jonesboro police say fake $10 and $20 bills are continuing to circulate in the city.

Officials say several retailers and a city office reported getting fake money this week.

The Jonesboro Sun reports that Jonesboro's electric and water utility report that a customer used three fake $20 bills to pay a bill Tuesday. The currency was found to be fake by Liberty Bank employees. 2 of the bills had the same serial number.

Police say someone passed a counterfeit $20 bill to buy food at a McDonald's restaurant and that the bill had the same serial number as one passed at City Water and Light.

Also, a counterfeit $10 bill was discovered by Integrity Bank employees.

Also, two fake $20s were passed at a Walmart store on Dec. 5.
