MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - The Myrtle Beach Police Department responded to multiple calls regarding counterfeit bills over the weekend, according to police reports.

Police responded to Broadway at the Beach early Saturday morning where a complainant stated that she had a customer at Revolutions attempting to pass a counterfeit fifty dollar bill.

Antwain Jared Pratt, 21, told police that he received the bill from Georgetown Kraft Credit Union in Kingstree. After a few minutes later, Pratt then changed his story and stated he obtained the bill from a convenience store, according to the police report.

Police seized the fifty dollar bill as evidence and placed it into a locker at the police department.

In another incident, police were dispatched to a gas station in reference to a customer attempting to use counterfeit money on Sunday morning.

Upon arrival, the complainant handed police a counterfeit ten dollar bill that Curtis Malloy, 36, gave to the complainant.

Malloy stated that he was given the money by another family member to purchase items, but was unaware how the family member had received the money, according to the police report.

Police seized the ten dollar bill as evidence and placed it into a folder at the police department.

Later that Sunday, police responded to a call from Dillards in Coastal Grande Mall that a male and female were together in the store and had passed a lot of American Express travelers checks.

Terrika Jashica Reece, 25, exited the store on the Seaboard Street side of the mall and was stopped by police. Police were told by witnesses that the male subject was inside a white vehicle in the parking lot but police were unable to locate him.

When officers were able to catch Reece, she handed police her identification which appeared to be a fake ID from California. The name on the ID was the same name that she had been writing on the checks, according to the police report.

After being advised to provide her real name and identity to police, she provided officers with her name and date of birth which matched the name that was tattoo'ed on her right forearm. She then provided police with her real Georgia driver's license.

Other officers remembered a report of people passing counterfeit American Express travelers checks in the same store Friday night. Reece was one of the people involved, according to the police report.

On Friday night, Reece attempted to pay with four $100 American Express travelers checks. The clerk told police that when she checked to see if the bills were verified, Reece picked them up off of the counter and left the store.

Police arrested Reece for false information and possession of counterfeit and forged American Express travelers checks.
