CORALVILLE, Iowa -- The holiday season is bringing increased challenges for police dealing with counterfeit and identity theft crimes. This year, police in Coralville are seeing smaller bills reported as counterfeit from area retailers.

"The bills have gotten smaller as the year has progressed," said Lt. Shane Kron of the Coralville Police Department. "It used to be mainly larger bills."

Kron said his department has had to investigate more cases involving fake $20, $10 and $5 bills within the year.

"That naturally goes up during the holiday season," he said. "You have more people in the stores."

Kron said of 138 cases he has assigned to investigators this year, 51 have been for forgery, identity theft or fraud. Another 25 have been for complaints about counterfeiting.

Police are also dealing with more credit card related theft in recent years. Some thief's are even making completely fictitious cards with credit card numbers stolen from victims around the country.
