Counterfeiting charges for Pa. trio

A Pennsylvania trio has been arrested and charged with counterfeiting because they printed fake $20 bills out using a computer and then swapped them for real ones at a nearby Subway restaurant, according to this report:

On April 26, a state police trooper was called to the Subway after the owner said one of her employees found three "obviously counterfeit" $20s in the safe. The owner checked the surveillance video and saw one of her employees, the 17-year-old boy, take bills from his pocket and exchange it for money in the cash register.
Before exchanging the bills, the employee marked the bills with a counterfeit marking pen, which resulted in a dark brown mark, meaning they were fake.
