Thief surprised fake $100 bill almost worked at gas station

A man in South Brunswick, N.J.

Attempted to pay his charges at a gas station with a fake $100 bill.

Police were called once the gas station clerk realized the trick the man had pulled off.

The South Brunswick Police Department even posted a photo of the phony bill on Twitter.

โ€œFor Motion Picture Use Onlyโ€ is emblazoned on both the front and the back of the bill.

According to law enforcement, the 20-year-old man was eventually tracked down.

The suspect allegedly admitted that he himself was surprised that the ploy almost worked.

It can be punishable by up to five years in prison and/or a $500 fine.

Itโ€™s unclear as of now whether the suspect will be charged with anything
