“These Aren’t My Pants,” Says Man Who Paid At Airport With Counterfeit Bill
A man from Allegheny County, Pennsylvania is facing felony charges after allegedly passing a fake $100 bill at an airport concession stand.
Police say Stephen Patterson gave the fake $100 to an employee working a concession stand at Arnold Palmer Regional Airport while purchasing some drinks. The cashier noticed that the bill was clearly marked "For Motion Picture Use Only," and contacted officers at the airport.
They identified Patterson as a passenger on the plane and arrested him when his flight landed in Latrobe.
”They got a warrant for him, and Sunday, when he flew back into the airport they picked him up and served the warrant,” Park Police Chief Henry Fontana said.
Officers asked Stephen Patterson about the $100 bill, and his excuse was the most classic way of saying "Yeah, I'm guilty."
”He said that the pants he was wearing were not his, and he found the $100 bill in the pocket, so he decided to just use it,” Park Police Chief Henry Fontana told WPXI.
Patterson will be facing felony charges for the fake bill, and the Secret Service was notified of the incident, as they are with any counterfeit bill case.
