Buffalo police charged an 18-year-old with felony forgery Monday night after finding 94 counterfeit $100 bills during a traffic stop in Black Rock, according to a police report.
Hector L. Quinones, of Churchill Street, was a back-seat passenger in a car pulled over on Churchill, a dead-end street off Amherst Street, west of Military Road, shortly before 11 p.m., according to the report.
Officers found the counterfeit cash in a bag next to Quinones in the back seat during a search of the vehicle, according to the report.
Quinones was charged with first-degree forgery, and the vehicle was impounded.
Police said officers pulled the car over because it was missing a license plate and a registration sticker. The driver, who was not identified in the report, was issued several citations, including for driving without a license. Police also found the vehicle’s license plate was registered to another vehicle.
