Home repair stores discover phony money

MOULTRIE — Home repair stores in Moultrie turned over phony money on Tuesday to police after two women made purchases at one of them and had the fake bills rejected at a machine at the second.

Lowes, 602 Veterans Parkway N., reported at 6:10 p.m. that earlier in the day two women bought merchandise with bills that later were found to be counterfeit.

About an hour later police were called to Home Depot, where the machine in the self-service had collected counterfeit money that two women tried to use.

The machine recognized that the money was no good and did not allow them to make the transaction.

The only description given of the two was that they were white females.
