Two Illinois men have been accused of attempting to use counterfeit money.

Kennard Partee, 49, Chicago, was charged July 14 with forgery, and Kelvin Davis, 46, Skokie, was also charged July 14 with forgery.

According to a Johnson County Sheriff's Office complaint, Partee allegedly used a fraudulent $20 bill to purchase beer, and later he was found possessing a fraudulent $50 bill.

Davis was allegedly possessed three counterfeit $20 bills that all had the same serial number.

The $20 bill Partee possessed had the same serial number as the bills seized from Davis. Officers were able to easily identify that the bills were counterfeit, the complaint said.

Forgery is a Class-D felony.
