Man used bogus $100 bills with wrong president's face

ATTLEBORO, RI - Police say a man that passed counterfiet $100 bills made a critical printing mistake.

The bills showed a picture of President Abraham Lincoln instead of Benjamin Franklin. Lincoln's portrait graces the $5 bill.

29-year-old Dana Leland of Pawtucket, RI was arrested after an officer recognized him from surveillance photos.

Investigators say Leland used the fake notes at the same Target store on three consecutive days to buy socks and other items worth less than $25. He then pocketed the change.

Leland's lawyer said her client has struggled with drug, alcohol and mental health issues, and had a relapse.
