A Cumberland County man is accused of creating and using counterfeit money at over 80 different locations in the Susquehanna Valley.
 
Police say 27-year-old Tyler Lyden of Lemoyne used small bills to stay under the radar, spending the money at locations such as the Buffalo Wild Wings on Carlisle Pike, along with the Dairy Queen and Smokers Express in New Cumberland.
 
One of the officers working on the case said most people didn’t check them, so he went under the radar for months. “He used fives and tens and 20 dollar bills, and because, let’s face it, most people aren’t going to look twice at something, they’re not going to think they’re counterfeit. They’re not going to suspect them,” Richard Nulty, Detective for Hampden Township Police, said.
 
Now that these bills, along with many other counterfeit bills are in circulation in Central Pennsylvania, it’s important to double-check your own money to see if it’s legitimate.
 
The United States Secret Service has given the public 5 tips to see if they’re bills are real or fake. You can find those tips here: http://www.secretservice.gov/money_detect.shtml
