SUMMERSVILLE, W.Va. (AP) - Summersville police have arrested two South Carolina men on counterfeiting charges.

The Charleston Gazette-Mail (http://bit.ly/1TxzxrS) reports 40-year-old Terrance Williams and 38-year-old Anatoliy Melnik of Inman, South Carolina, were charged Wednesday on multiple counts related to counterfeit currency.

Summersville Police Chief Jay Nowak says in a news release that police and U.S. Secret Service agents arrested the men after they allegedly used counterfeit money to make separate purchases at a store in Summersville. A large amount of counterfeit money was found in a subsequent search of a pickup truck in which the men were traveling.

Williams and Melnik were held on $60,000 bond apiece Thursday in the Central Regional Jail in Sutton. Jail records didn’t indicate whether they had attorneys.
