Bags of fast food help S.C. police bust counterfeiting operation

EASLEY, S.C. — Bags of uneaten fast food helped police bust a couple of counterfeiters, authorities said.

An officer who pulled over a car in January noticed food from several different fast-food restaurants and a large amount of cash, federal prosecutors said.

The officer went back to the restaurants and found that people matching descriptions of those in the car had paid for the food with fake $100 bills, authorities said.

A total of $6,000 in counterfeit bills was eventually found in the car, prosecutors said.
