WALHALLA, SC -

The Oconee County Sheriff's Office is warning businesses to be on the alert for counterfeit money after four recent cases in the county.

Sheriff's Office spokesman Jimmy Watt said that the first incident happened on May 26. A Walhalla resident received a counterfeit $20 bill in exchange for a piece of broken furniture, which the individual never came back to claim.

Two more incidents happened the next day as more counterfeit money was passed at the McDonald's on Scenic Plaza Drive in West Union and at the Dollar General on Scenic Plaza Drive.

According to Watt, a woman, identified as 25-year-old Kayla Marie Bryson, was charged with forgery after she passed three counterfeit $10 bills to the cashier at the Dollar General. Later that evening, a man driving a four-door vehicle passed two counterfeit $20 while making a purchase at the McDonald's and also to make change.

On Monday, a fourth incident happened at the McDonald's at Sandifer Boulevard in Seneca. Watt said that a sheriff's deputy was called to the scene after a person ordered food at the drive-thru and gave the cashier a counterfeit $10 bill to pay for the order.

If you have any information about any of the cases, you are asked to contact Oconee County Crimestoppers at 638-STOP or 1-888-CRIME SC. If your tip leads to an arrest, you could be eligible for a cash reward of up to $2,000.
