    ST. JOHNS COUNTY, Fla. - The St. Johns County Sheriff’s Office is investigating two new cases of counterfeit cash used at local businesses. 

    According to police reports, counterfeit money was used this week at two gas stations in the county. 

    On Monday, the manager of the Gate station at 2350 State Road 16 in St. Augustine called the Sheriff’s Office to report a counterfeit $10 bill discovered by a cashier.

    The investigator reviewed security footage but was unable to determine which customer passed the counterfeit bill. That same day, SJSO investigators were also called to the Kangaroo at 4301 A1A S for a counterfeit $10 bill.  

    The two incidents come about a week after the Sheriff’s Office confiscated counterfeit bills from a Little Caesar’s Pizza, Hess gas station, 7-Eleven and a yard sale. No arrests have been made in connection with this week’s counterfeit cases.
