KODIAK — The Kodiak Police Department continues to investigate a spate of counterfeit dollars that have been popping up among Kodiak businesses.

The fake bills have appeared in denominations between $10 and $100, and no denomination is more common, police chief T.C. Kamai said. There also appears to be no pattern to where the bills appear.

The U.S. Secret Service, which falls under the Treasury Department, investigates large-scale counterfeiting. Kamai said KPD has shared the information it has, but for the moment, the case remains a local investigation.

The police department advises business owners to review information at the Secret Service website, www.secretservice.gov, for tips on identifying fake currency.

Anyone with information on the case is invited to submit it to Kodiak Crime Stoppers at 486-3113 or by texting 274637 and including 486tip at the beginning of the message. Tips can be anonymous, and information leading to an indictment and conviction could result in a $1,000 reward.
