A CMPD officer reacted quickly to information provided by a Bed, Bath & Beyond employee, and the result was a man and woman from Georgia are now in jail.
The pair had been passing counterfeit 100 dollar bills in the Arboretum Shopping in South Charlotte last week, when a Bed, Bath and Beyond employee flagged down the CMPD officer.
According to the Charlotte Observer: Taneisha Reynolds, 21, and Dennis Moore, 24, were charged with uttering a forged instrument, and were being held in Mecklenburg County Jail Monday under $50,000 bond each.
The officer found 54 fake $100 bills under the car's passenger seat, one still with a mark from the store's anti-counterfeiting pen still visible.
When Secret Service agents arrived, they found more than $5,100 in genuine currency hidden in Moore's underwear.
Agents say Moore was arrested in August and September and charged with forgery in Georgia.
Agents ran a search on one of the counterfeit $100 bill's serial numbers and found copies of it have been passed at least 26 times in Georgia, South Carolina and North Carolina during recent weeks. The pair were still behind bars as of 8PM Monday.
