NEW CASTLE — New Castle police are investigating an incident of counterfeit money being used at a downtown restaurant.

Police said a manager of Burger King reported receiving a fake $50 bill around 10 p.m. Wednesday.

He said he noticed the bill while counting money for that day, and believes it had been handed to a clerk at the drive-through window.

Police said the bill was cut differently at the bottom than a regular $50 bill and it did not pass the brown marking test.
