Fake cash with Russian ties secured after cops called to Mason City pizza joint

MASON CITY – The Russian web seems to have extended its tentacles into River City after police were called to a local pizza joint to investigate fake cash.

Mason City police say that on Monday, October 9th shortly after 8:00 PM, officers were dispatched to Godfather’s Pizza at 1703 4th Street S.E. on a report of a man that had attempted to pay with a counterfeit $20 bill.
That investigation led to a search warrant being served at an apartment in the 200 block of 5th Street N.E. During that search, another identical counterfeit $20 was found as well as methamphetamine, marijuana and drug paraphernalia.

Another Mason City restaurant discovered an identical counterfeit bill on Sunday, October 8th, that was turned over to police.

The investigation is still on going and charges are pending.

According to police, these most recent counterfeit bills have some Russian text printed on them, as well as the word “Cruger” under the portrait of President Jackson. Also on the back of the bill under the image of the White House are the words “Donetsk City”.
