Fake money stolen from Chronicle display

  • Follow Latest News

Fake money was stolen from a display at an office at The Augusta Chronicle during a burglary Wednesday night.

The thief, or thieves, used a brick to break into the Broad Street office and ripped fake $100, $50 and $20 bills from the display, according to a Richmond County Sheriff's report.

Jen Pursley, a Chronicle advertising employee, said the display was being used for an employee sales initiative. Ms. Pursley said the thief took all the fake money, except for two $1 bills taped to the wall. Several downtown businesses have been robbed in a similar manner recently, including Stillwater Tap Room, Sweet Lou’s Crab Shack and the Cotton Patch.

I thought there was no money

I thought there was no money taken from the Cotton Patch? I'm only funnin here, but to think Morris Communications has any spare money laying around with their debts is a stretch.

Isn't it against the law to make "fake" money? did they steal counterfeit money? I guess there is no crime here other than the breaking and entering. I bet if I called the police and reported my counterfeit money missing I would have some splaining to do.

No, it's not against the law

No, it's not against the law to make fake money, as long as a reasonable person could easily tell it was fake, and that it's not being used as real money.

The businesses weren't

The businesses weren't "robbed," they were burglarized...why can't the media in this town get it right? "Robbery" and "burglary" are completely different.
