Officials at a local truck stop reported they confiscated a counterfeit $100 bill after a female, who came in to make a purchase.

According to a report filed by deputy John Davis of the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office, he spoke with Randi Scott of Love’s Travel Center in Charleston.

The report indicated a black female approached the clerk at the store and attempted to pay for merchandise with what appeared to be a $100 bill.

The clerk noticed the currency had an “unusual feel, and the ink was blurred and faded.”

The clerk advised the woman she could not accept the currency as payment and told her she had to keep it.

Law enforcement was notified and the woman reportedly left the store prior to their arrival.

The fake bill was taken into evidence at the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office.

- Tennessee Highway Patrol will be conducting Driver’s License Roadside Safety Checkpoints in Bradley County next weekend.

The checkpoints will be set up in random locations in the county.

According to THP officials, checkpoints are an effective means of recognizing the dangers presented to the driving public, by motorists who would violate the driver’s license laws of the state.

All scheduled checkpoints are contingent upon weather conditions and manpower availability.
