Devils Lake police are encouraging people to monitor their money after a second counterfeit bill is found in town this year.

A clerk at the Cenex West convenience store found a counterfeit $50 bill last week. A fake $50 was spent at the Lake Three theater over New Year's weekend. Police questioned the person that tried to spend the bill, who said they likely got the counterfeit bill in Carrington. Police say they don't believe the person was knowingly trying to spend counterfeit money.

All counterfeit bills are sent to the Secret Service office in the Twin Cities for examination.
