A man is in trouble with the law for buying booze with funny money and an ID that didn't belong to him, officials said.

Luilly A. Rollins-Wilson was arrested for using counterfeit $20 bills to pay for $30 worth of beer at Roosevelt's 21st bar, 21 West Elizabeth Ave., Bethlehem, at 1:20 a.m. Friday, officials said.

Rollins-Wilson, who is 20, used an ID for a 25-year-old man named Charlys Julio Lantigua to buy the beer, officials said, adding that Rollins-Wilson claimed he found the ID on the ground.


Police found Rollins-Wilson had a total of 28 phony $20 bills on him and none of them had a watermark of President Andrew Jackson or security strips, and only three serial numbers were used on all of the bills, officials said.

Rollins-Wilson, of 612 Morton St., Bethlehem, was arraigned on charges of forgery, theft, receiving stolen property, underage possession of alcohol and possessing a false ID and committed to the Northampton County Prison on $3,000 bail, according to court documents.

A preliminary hearing is set for 10 a.m. Jan. 31.
