ATTLEBORO, Mass. (November 15, 2012)--A Rhode Island man who police say used counterfeit $100 bills to make purchases at a Target store made a critical mistake.
The bills displayed a picture of President Abraham Lincoln rather than Benjamin Franklin, who appears on real $100 bills.
Lincoln appears on the $5 bill.
Dana Leland, 29, of Central Falls, R.I., was held on $1,000 cash bond after pleading not guilty Wednesday in Attleboro District Court to charges of uttering a counterfeit note and possession of a counterfeit note.
Police tell The Sun Chronicle 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 had a relapse.
