WESLACO – Police are warning residents about an increase of counterfeit money during the holiday season.

Alamo police say they confiscated $1,300 of counterfeit money last week.

Vapecation store manager Rico Rivas says the store has had only one case of a counterfeit transaction that he is aware of.

"It was a larger transaction and there were multiple bills, like I said, we had never dealt with it before, so we had no reason to question our customers," says Rivas.

KRGV’s John Paul Barajas spoke with Alamo Police Investigator Urbano Lopez about what residents can do to avoid becoming a victim.
