Police are looking for a man who used counterfeit $20 bills to buy a Walmart cash card on Sunday night.
According to police reports, the man used $320 in counterfeit bills at the Rock Hill Walmart on Old York Road to buy a $300 cash card. The cost of activating the card was $3.03.
Mark Bollinger, executive officer for the Rock Hill Police Department, said while its not uncommon for businesses to report the use of counterfeit bills, its less common for several bills to be used at once.
People usually are unaware they have even used counterfeit bills, Bollinger said, but businesses have grown reluctant to accept larger currency, such as $100 bills, due to the possibility of counterfeiting.
Officers are reviewing Walmart security video to try to identify the suspect.
