Corrections officers later found out the bills were fake. They discovered that five of the bills had the same serial number and did not have any security features found on legitimate U.S. money.

Yerby is in the Limestone County Jail now charged with five counts of first-degree possession of a forged instrument along with his probation violation.

Yerby’s bond is set at $25,000
