WALHALLA, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Counterfeit money was passed in three different instances in Oconee County over the past month, according to the Oconee County Sheriff's Office.

In the latest instance, a man used a counterfeit $10 bill to pay for an order at the McDonald's drive-thru in Seneca on Monday, according to deputies.

Fake bills were also used on May 27 at a Dollar General and another McDonald's in Seneca, according to deputies.

Deputies said Kayla Bryson, 25, of West Union, was arrested by deputies on forgery charges in connection with the incident at Dollar General.

In the May McDonald's case, deputies said a man gave two $20 bills in the drive-thru just before 7 p.m. Deputies said the man used one bill to pay and the other to make change. They said he was driving a four-door vehicle.

On May 26, deputies said a Walhalla resident was given a fake $20 bill in exchange for a piece of broken furniture, which the person never came back to claim.

Deputies said the bills have been in $10 and $20 denominations.

If you have any information concerning the cases currently open, the sheriff's office asks you to get in touch with Crime Stoppers at 638-STOP or 1-888-CRIME-SC.
