Greenville Police have arrested two suspects in connection with multiple transactions using fake $100 bills throughout downtown Greenville.

21 year old Emily Nicole Dillard and 23 year old Tamias Denzel Wesley, 23, were taken into custody for their part in distributing the counterfeit bills to several businesses and individuals since January 2018.

The fake money looks very similar to legal tender but includes the phrases "FOR MOTION PICTURE USE ONLY" on the front of the bill and "FOR CINEMATIC USE ONLY" on the back. The word "COPY" are clearly visible on both sides of the bills. 

Dillard is charged with 11 counts of obtaining property under false pretense. Wesley is charged with four counts.
