More bogus bucks are showing up in Wilkes—this time a rash of $50 bills.  The counterfeit cash was passed last weekend at the Wal-Mart store in Wilkesboro, management there saying the bills were passed last Saturday at three different registers, and all three purchases were small and gave the perpetrator a good amount of real currency as change. The police reports shows that one man apparently passed all three bills, and they were able to follow his movements from the grocery side, where the first two purchases were made, to the garden center, where he made the third purchase after moving his car and taking off his sunglasses.  The man left in the direction of US 421 in either a BMW or Volkswagen sedan.
