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.

This is why we need to give

This is why we need to give everyone a free marker so that we can check the money we get back from the cash register.

I agree willistontownsc, what

I agree willistontownsc, what are we to do when we get change and it is counterfeit, I guess the same thing, call the police and report them trying to pass counterfeit money. I am sure it happens and bet that is how some of the counterfeit gets out into the public. We then use it for another purchase at another store and we ware the ones who get in trouble. I will be going out and buying one of the pens and do the same thing from this day forward when i receive change, while I stand right there. But could you imagine the look on the cashier's face, like what you don't trust me. Then the explanation would be, from me at least, you all check the money I use to pay for my purchase, I have every right to check the money you give me for change.
