SEPTEMBER 12--North Carolina cops are searching for a guy who 
successfully passed a $200 bill bearing George W. Bush's portrait and a 
drawing of the White House complete with lawn signs reading "We like ice 
cream" and "USA deserves a tax cut." The phony Bush bill--a copy of 
which you'll find below--was presented to a cashier at a Food Lion in 
Roanoke Rapids on September 6 by an unidentified male who was seeking to 
pay for $150 in groceries. Remarkably, the cashier accepted the 
counterfeit note and gave the man $50 change. In a separate incident 
involving a different perp, Roanoke Rapids cops Tuesday arrested Michael 
Harris, 24, for attempting last month to pass an identical $200 Bush 
bill at a convenience store. (3 pages)
