    The Shelbyville Police Department is warning merchants to be on the lookout for fake $100 bills.

    Major Istvan Kovacs said that so far, one such bill has surfaced at the McDonald’s restaurant on Frankfort Road.

    The bills look like the real thing, with one exception.

    It is stamped at the top of the bill with the statement, “For motion picture use only.”

    Officials at the Shelby County Chamber of Commerce are also concerned, warning business to instruct employees to carefully inspect the bills when accepting cash.

  • Shed destroyed in blaze

    No one was injured Friday in a fire in Bagdad that destroyed a large shed.

    The fire was called in at 9 a.m. at 2164 Cedarmore Road, the home of Darrell and Linda Aldridge.

    Rick Floyd, a captain with the Bagdad Fire Department, said there was some concern because the 2-bay structure was near some other buildings.

    “It was about five feet from an old dairy barn and an out building,” he said. “He [Aldridge] got all the equipment out. We were just lucky the wind was blowing the other way, or we would have had a real big mess.”
