UPDATE--Jackson County authorities are looking for four women suspected of passing counterfeit money at area discount stores.
The latest incident happened Tuesday night at a Dollar General in Cottondale. The women used nine counterfeit $100 bills to buy visa money cards and some merchandise.
They left the scene in a black 4-door Ford F-150 pick-up truck.
Cottondale Police say the store clerks didn't discover the money was fake until they tried to deposit the bills at the bank the next day.
"A lot of people don't even know how to look for what’s, and they got so many different ways to make counterfeit bills nowadays,” explained Cottondale Police Chief William Watford. “People just need to educate themselves about the bills, and how the bills can be counterfeit, and what they feel like and what they look like."
Jackson County Sheriff's Investigators believe the same women passed counterfeit money at a Dollar General store in Marianna.
