BELLEVUE - Brown County sheriff's officials are looking for four men who used counterfeit $100 bills at a Bellevue store.
Deputies say the four went into Target, 2050 Lime Kiln Rd., just after 4:30 p.m. last Thursday. They walked into the store and stayed in front near the registers. Three of the men made small purchases with the fake bills, but the fourth man's purchase was denied.
Surveillance images of the suspects are available to the left.
Inspections of the bill revealed they were $5 bills that had been "washed" and printed with images of $100 bills. Investigators say the security strips located inside the bills remained visible when held up to light. The outline of the portrait of President Abraham Lincoln was also visible. The bills all had identical serial numbers.
Surveillance video showed the men arrived in a dark-colored four-door vehicle that may have had Illinois license plates. When they left the store, they walked away to the south, toward Copps grocery store.
Officials say the incident is similar to incidents that have been happening in the greater Green Bay area and south toward Milwaukee.
