Police say man's fake $100 bills had wrong face

Posted:

ATTLEBORO, Mass. (WKOW) -- Police say the Rhode Island man who used counterfeit $100 bills to make purchases at a Target store, failed to put the correct face on them.

Officials say the bills had a picture of President Abraham Lincoln on them. Real $100 bills have a picture of Benjamin Franklin. Lincoln's portrait normally grace the $5 bill.

Police say Dana Leland of Central Falls, Rhode Island, was held on $1,000 cash bail after pleading not guilty Wednesday to charges of uttering a counterfeit note and possession of a counterfeit note.

Police say the 29-year-old used the fake notes on three consecutive days at a Target 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 had a relapse.
