$1,000,000 In Prop Money Stolen From Newport Car

NEWPORT, Ore. – A million dollars in prop money was stolen from a car Thursday night in Newport.

Police say the fake cash was in $10, $20, and $100 denominations and clearly marked “For Motion Picture Use Only” and “Copy.”

“The Newport Police Department would like to take this opportunity to warn local businesses and the public about the “counterfeit” money that could begin circulating and to remind all to be diligent, especially in light of this theft, in the proper identification of any currency you take. Aside from the obvious print, warning that the currency is for Motion Picture Use only, it will also feel different from authentic US currency.”

If anyone has any information about the theft of the prop/movie money or any of other items taken in this theft, please contact Officer Jon Humphreys, Case #22N-00610.
