Hy-Vee station gets phony travelers checks

Posted: Thursday, Jan 10th, 2013

BROOKINGS Several counterfeit travelers checks were passed recently in Brookings, and city police are reminding merchants to be on guard for the funny money.

Police Lt. Derrick Powers said a worker at the Hy-Vee Gas Station accepted four of the phony checks earlier this month.

The incident was reported Wednesday when the bank returned the checks.

A customer offered travelers checks totaling $200 for various items he was purchasing at the convenience store, Powers said.
