Decatur police are looking for a man who they said tried to spend counterfeit money at a business in the city.

Police released surveillance video from April 4 of the man and a vehicle. According to police, the man went into the business and used a counterfeit $50 bill to buy some items.

The man is about 5'10" and 160 pounds and appears to be between 40-45 years old, police said. He was driving an older-model blue Volkswagen Jetta with an out-of-state tag.

Anyone with information about the man's identity is asked to contact Detective Ferguson at the Decatur Police Department Financial Crimes Unit at 256-341-4669.

The issue of counterfeit money being used in the city has increased in the last month, police said.
