CrimeStoppers Tip of the Week: Recently several counterfeit bills have been circulating in the community. These bills also have made their way into the school with students. Please be diligent and check your money. Having counterfeit bills could result in an arrest with a felony charge, and since currency is a federally controlled item, a violator could be charged in Federal Court as well. If you have any information regarding counterfeit bills, please call CrimeStoppers at 718-8747. Or go to the website cashfortips.us or the school website and click on the link. You can also send a text to: CRIMES. Start your message TIP672SHS with your tip. Remember, Crimestoppers wants your information, not your name.
