Two cases of counterfeit bills were reported in North Augusta this weekend.

Sumitra Patel, the owner of Blue Bell Mini Mart at 632 E. Buena Vista Ave., told police that someone had tried to pay for a bottle of wine with a counterfeit $100 bill around 9 p.m. Friday. The holder of the bill said he had gotten it from his wife. When officers contacted her, she said she had gotten it from a bank.

On Saturday evening, an employee of Greg’s Gas Plus, 525 Atomic Road, called officers when someone tried to pay her with a counterfeit $10 bill. The holder of the $10 bill said he did not know where the bill came from, but suspected it had come from another local business, according to a North Augusta Public Safety report.

Police have not said the two cases are related.
