Brookings man arrested for passing fake $100 bills

A Brookings man is facing felony charges after passing bogus $100 bills at a local bank.

Sergeant Joel Perry says 40-year-old Stephen Knapp presented prop money and was given real money in return. He left the bank but another bank employee realized it was fake money and contacted police.

Knapp was arrested nearby and is facing two counts of passing a forged instrument.

The money was recovered.
