Police: RI man's fake $100 bills had wrong face

Had pictures of Abraham Lincoln on them, rather than Benjamin Franklin

Associated Press

ATTLEBORO, Mass. — A Rhode Island man police say used counterfeit $100 bills to make purchases at a Target store made a critical mistake.

The 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 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 tell The Sun Chronicle the 29-year-old Leland used the fake notes on three consecutive days at the North Attleborough store to buy items worth less than $25.
