A Georgia man is in York County Prison after police say he tried to pass a counterfeit $100 bill at a Shrewsbury Township Walmart.
State police are looking for his two alleged accomplices who they say successfully passed $400 in counterfeit bills at the store on April 24, police said on Sunday.
Brandon Jamell Brewer, 26, of Decatur, Ga., remains in prison in lieu of $50,000 bail. He is charged with forgery, conspiracy to commit forgery, possession of an instrument of a crime and retail theft, according to online court documents.
Troopers said one of the two black women with Brewer bought a debit card and put $200 on it with the fake bills, receiving $95.36 in change. She then bought a T-shirt with another counterfeit $100 bill, police said.
The other woman bought a $3.97 item with a $100 bill. When she attempted to make a second purchase at a different register, the cashier became suspicious of the $100 bill she was paying with and the woman left the store, police said.
Brewer then attempted to make a purchase with another counterfeit $100 bill, but that cashier also became suspicious, and he attempted to flee but was stopped by store security, police said.
The women were last seen driving away in a white or silver Honda Odyssey.
