An Elgin man has been charged with forgery for using counterfeit money to pay for meals at two restaurants last month in the northwest suburb.

Maurice Garner, 19, was arrested Wednesday and charged with three felony counts of forgery, according to the Elgin police, who said Garner paid for food with counterfeit money at a restaurant on Larkin Avenue on July 27 and, an hour later, did the same thing at a restaurant on Randall Road.

Garner was ordered held at the Kane County Jail on a $40,000 bond Friday, according to the Kane County sheriff’s office.
