Counterfeit Money Used At Local Store

A significant sum of counterfeit bills were used to make a purchase at a local Dollar General earlier this week.

Summerville Police Officers met with Allan Welles at the Dollar General Store located on Commerce Street on Monday, regarding a transaction made on Sunday, May 23rd. Welles stated that 9 $50 bills had been used to make a purchase, totaling $450. The bank had the counterfeit bills, as they were the ones who alerted Welles that the bills were fake after receiving the deposit.

Security camera footage of the transaction did show a black, adult male purchasing money pack cards using the bills.
