Bogus bills — $100s, $50s and even $5 bills — are showing up in Greeley stores, and police are putting merchants on alert.

Last week, police arrested four Denver people for allegedly trying to pass phony $100 bills and even found two of the counterfeit bills hidden in an unusual place on one of the suspects.

The fours arrests: Serene Donlan, 26; Ebonee Bryant, 27; Helaman Lucero, 25, and Felicia Munoz, 24; were all Denver residents. Three of them are women, and Lucero was identified by police as a “transsexual — a man living as a woman.”

The suspects were also accused of passing some of the counterfeit bills at the Outlet Stores in Loveland.
