The Brenham Police Department noted the counterfeit bills sport a "MOTION PICTURE USE ONLY" label on both sides of the bill.

According to a Facebook post on the police department’s page, the bill pictured was passed at a Brenham business and authorities are investigating.

The department issued this warning: “If you work in a business that receives cash payments, please be vigilant and use extra caution to ensure the authenticity of all money exchanged.”
