SCAM ALERT. We have noticed some fake currency in Scottsville in all denominations. Be sure to check you bills very carefully. This is movie production money and can be purchased online. It looks extremely real. However you will notice on the bills the following information. “Prop copy” on the back right side. “In props we trust” on the back at the top. “For motion pictures purposes, not legal tender” on the back. Please share as we enter the holidays and more currency is exchanged.

There have been questions about the times of festivities for Saturday. So we shared the flyer from the Renaissance page.

PSA: It’s that time of year where property crimes are on the rise. The weather is getting warmer and these crimes will increase even more as we approach summer. Common targets for these crimes are:

unsecured buildings,
unsecured vehicles,
loose items near roadways,
trailers,
tools,
construction equipment,
and lawn equipment.

Evaluate these areas and find ways to secure your property. We encourage you to install security cameras up near access points as photos and videos from these devices are a great way to help identify thieves.

As always, stay safe Simpson County!
