For the second time this month, an unknown suspect used a fake $100 bill in Rock Hill, according to a police report.
The bill was used at the BI-LO off East Main Street in Rock Hill. The report does not list what the suspect bought.
A store employee discovered the fake bill around 9:30 p.m. on May 12, the report states.
The words “Prop Money” and “For Cinematic Use Only” are printed on the front of the money in several places, the Rock Hill police report states. The bill “had a purple tint in the background and felt like normal paper,” the report says.

This is the second similar incident this month.
An unknown male reportedly paid for a $2.17 glass of tea with a fake $100 bill in a separate incident at a Showmars restaurant on Dave Lyle Boulevard in Rock Hill.
On May 3, police spoke with a Showmars district manager, who told officers that someone used fake money to pay for food at the Showmars in the Rock Hill Galleria on Dave Lyle.
The fake bill had the words “For Motion Pictures Only” written across the top, police said.
The manager was unable to locate video of the incident on store cameras, according to the report.
A description of the suspect was not available for either incident. Both cases are under investigation.
