$ 9,000 in ‘movie’ money found in El Dorado Hills trash can
About $ 9,000 of counterfeit money was found Thursday morning in a trash can in downtown El Dorado Hills, according to the El Dorado County Sheriff’s Office.
The trash can was located in front of the Selland market. The notes were in denominations of $ 20, $ 50 and $ 100.
A photograph shared by the sheriff’s office shows piles of money with “for cinematic purposes” stamped in the upper right corner of the bills.
Sheriff officials say they don’t know who threw the money away or if it’s in circulation.
Residents are asked to report counterfeit tickets to EDSO Expedition at 530-621-6600.
