Counterfeit bill leads to drug seizure in Mason City

Posted:
MASON CITY, Iowa (KTTC) -

An attempt to use a counterfeit bill at a pizza shop led to a drug seizure in Mason City. The counterfeit money has Russian lettering on it.

Mason City Police first came across it Monday night when they were called to Godfather's Pizza in the southeast part of town. An employee said that a man tried to pay with a fake 20 dollar bill.

That investigation led officers to an apartment on the 200 block of 5th Street NE where an identical 20 dollar counterfeit bill was found along with meth and marijuana. 

The bills have Russian lettering on the front and back, with Donetsk City written underneath the White House. That's a city in Ukraine.

So far no arrests have been made but charges are pending. The investigation is ongoing.
