A loss prevention employee reported to Myrtle Beach police that counterfeit money was used at Wal-Mart on Monday, authorities said.

Officers were already at the Wal-Mart on Seaboard Street about 5:30 p.m. Monday investigating a shoplifting incident when a 47-year-old loss prevention employee reported that counterfeit money was used at the store, according to a police report.
