SEASIDE, Ore. – Fake $100 bills are being passed in the coastal tourist town of Seaside, and police are now looking for four people who may know more about how the bills got there. 

Seaside merchants said a group of individuals used at least two counterfeit bills at Seaside merchants on July 17. One of those bills went to a Seaside photography studio for a keepsake photo. That image, in its entirety, is below. Additional bills also were passed in town on July 18.

This photo is the best lead investigators have in trying to track down the identities of these "persons of interest" in the case.

Anyone with information related to this investigation or the identity of the person of interests are asked to call Seaside Police Detective Millbocker or Detective Steve Barnett at (503) 738-6311. Online tips can be sent by e-mail to sbarnett@cityofseaside.us.
