The Sturgeon Bay Police Department reports that an individual using the Baylake Bank drive-thru tried to pass two $20 bills. However, the bank teller said the money didn’t feel right & became suspicious after running the “funny money” through a machine at the bank. On closer inspection, investigating officers & bank employees noticed that both bills had the same serial number…”IL64237506D.” The Brussels man was arrested on a probation hold & taken to the Door County jail.
