COLLETON COUNTY, SC (WCSC) -

Two men are behind bars after officers say they found 15 counterfeit $10 bills and a handgun in Walterboro Monday afternoon.

The Walterboro Public Safety Department arrested 21-year-old Corey Lamont Robinson and 18-year-old Otario Lamar Fryar.

Around 12:08 p.m. on Monday, police officers saw two people walking in the middle of the road on Savage Street. Authorities say when officers attempted to make contact with the two, both men took off.

Investigators say Fryar was caught near Agnes street with 14 counterfeit $10 bills. According to police, Robinson was near the intersection of Wilson and Hill streets.

A police report states that during the pursuit, Robinson was seen kneeling down and concealing a black item underneath a piece of rusted metal in the woods. Officers say when they went back to the location, they found a .40 caliber semi-automatic handgun.

Police say they also found a counterfeit $10 bill on Robinson.

Both men were locked up at the Colleton County Detention Center.
