Fake bills found at Nixa High School

A student was caught passing out fake $100 bills at a southwest Missouri high school.

Nixa Public Schools is cautioning the community to be extra  thoughtful, because not all of the bills that were handed out on Tuesday have been collected.

District spokesman Zac Rantz says the bills “do appear to be fake.” But he adds that the bills could be mistaken for real currency if they were included in a bundle with other money.

Rantz says the school is currently working with the U.S. Secret Service. No information has been released about what happened to the unnamed students who distributed the bills. Rantz said only that the district is following its policies and procedures.
