A new report by the Kansas University Center for Banking Excellence has determined that the state of banking in Kansas is greatly improved and the industry positioned to thrive despite new regulatory standards.
Police are looking for a suspect who is wanted for passing fake $100 bills at two Salina businesses.
According to Lt. Scott Siemsen, a white male described as short, with medium brown hair and tattoos on his forearms purchased a $25 gift certificate from The Strand Beauty Salon, 214 W. Walnut, with a counterfeit $100 bill – and walked out with $75 in change Tuesday at about 11:25am.
Police say a similar crime occurred about a half hour later at Brooks Tan, 1839 S. 9th, when a suspect described as a 5-foot-5-inch white male, early to mid 20’s, with buzzed hair purchased a $25 gift certificate with a counterfeit $100 bill and left with $75 in cash from the store.
Police are reviewing video from Brooks Tan and are reminding stores to check watermarks and security strips on $100 bills.
