BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) - Federal authorities say an Alabama man has been charged with making counterfeit $100 bills.

A U.S. Secret Service special agent says a tip led them to search Hollis Nikia Bullard’s apartment in Birmingham, where thousands of dollars in fake money was found last week.

Prosecutors said in a complaint that officers found Bullard standing in the kitchen, within arm’s reach of dozens of counterfeit $100 bills.

Prosecutors said in the complaint that Bullard confessed to making the phony bills, and to distributing what appeared to be $10,000 in the past two weeks.

Hollis’ lawyer, Kevin Roberts, said Monday he had just been appointed to the case and couldn’t comment.
