NORTH AUGUSTA -- Police are looking for a man they believe passed off a counterfeit $100 bill at a North Augusta convenience store May 27.

The manager of the Circle K at 1035 Edgefield Road told police that a clerk from the store had taken a bill that had the watermark from a $5 bill and a hologram face of Abraham Lincoln, which should be on a $5 bill.

The clerk said she believed she took the bill from a black man who was about 6 feet tall and weighed about 180 pounds, according to a police report. The man may be driving a silver Pontiac Grand Am or a silver Grand Prix with a Florida tag.
