Pikeville Funny Money

The cash could be fake. The Pikeville Police Department got a tip Monday about a large quantity of $100 bills fluttering around between exits 23 and 24 on US-23. These bills ended up being fake. Officer Bruce Collins with the Pikeville PD gathered all of the bills he could from the roadside and brought them back to the station.“This is called ‘prop’ money,” said Pikeville PD Public Information Officer Tony Conn. “Large quantities can be bought at a small price. It looks real from afar, but up close, they look nothing like hundred dollar bills.”After the discovery was made, Pikeville PD made an announcement on its Facebook page to warn businesses as well as consumers about the funny money.
