Police: Man's fake $100 bills had wrong face
It's all about the Benjamins.
A Rhode Island man accused of using counterfeit $100 bills to make purchases at a Target made a critical mistake.
The fake bills had a picture of President Abraham Lincoln on them. Real $100 bills bear a picture of Benjamin Franklin. Lincoln's portrait graces the $5 bill.
Dana Leland, 29, of Central Falls, R.I., was held on $1,000 cash bail after pleading not guilty Wednesday in Attleboro District Court to charges of uttering a counterfeit note and possession of a counterfeit note.
Police said Leland used the fake notes on three consecutive days at the North Attleborough store to buy items worth less than $25.
Leland's lawyer said her client has struggled with drug and alcohol problems and untreated mental health issues, and he had a relapse.
