Bar finds fake $1 bills in tip jar

JUNEAU, AK Viking Lounge owner Jack Tripp says that in the 19 years he has owned the establishment, it has received counterfeit money only twice. Both times were in the last year, and both were fake $20 bills.

Juneau Police Department spokeswoman Cindee Brown-Mills says the latest fake bills were probably printed off the Internet. Some were blank on one side.

She says the economy must be really bad if people are counterfeiting $1 bills.

Tripp reimbursed his employees their $13 in tips -- with real money.
