bills considered novelty for money collectors
BREVARD COUNTY • COCOA, FLORIDA – Cocoa police officers are seeking information regarding several “novelty” bills used in a recent purchase at a local retail outlet that could possibly have been stolen in a burglary.
On Nov. 7, Cocoa police officers responded to the Dollar General, located at 801 Dixon Boulevard, after employees discovered several two dollar bills had been used to pay for items.
The bills had been designed to commemorate the national parks.
The bills are not counterfeit, but are considered a novelty for money collectors who purchase them for approximately $25 each.
A set of five with a certificate of authenticity can be sold for nearly three times the original purchase price.
“We are trying to determine if there is another jurisdiction with a reported burglary involving this type of missing property,” said Cocoa Police Lt. Mark Oenbrink.
“It’s also possible that there is a victim of a burglary that doesn’t yet realize they’ve been burglarized.”
Anyone with information should contact the Cocoa Police Department at 321-639-7620.
