St. Mary Parish Sheriff's deputies are looking for some fake bills dropped in Bayou Vista.

Deputies were called to Bayou Vista this afteroon by someone reporting that some money was thrown out of a vehicle. The money is counterfeit. Deputies collected as much of it as they could, but they believe some citizens may have picked up the fake bills.

They look like $20 bills but are counterfeit. It is against the law to possess or attempt to use counterfeit money, deputies say.

Sheriff Blaise Smith is asking the public to turn them in as soon as possible.

If you picked some of the bills up, simply call 337-828-1960 and one of our deputies will come to collect them from you.
