Police find counterfeit bills in Walmart

Albany Police are looking for two men who spent counterfeit money at the east Albany Walmart this afternoon.

They want other businesses to watch out for the phoney money.

About four o'clock, the men made two purchases with $100 that were really $5 bills altered to look like hundreds. Since they are real currency. They'll pass a marking pen test, but cashiers can still pick out a fake.

Phyllis Banks-Whitley, APD Media Manager says, "It will test positive but the markings will disappear and that should alert the cashier to take a second look."

Also, If you hold the bills up to a light you can see watermarks that show they're $5 bills.

Police say the men had a white envelope filled with cash. So investigators think they could be planning to spend more counterfeit bills.

The men are black, in their mid 20's and they're tall.

Police say one was about 6-8 and the other 6-6.
