WATERLOO (AP) -

Police say a Waterloo man arrested on forgery charges used counterfeit money to buy meals at several fast-food restaurants.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reports 31-year-old Brett William Wehrle was arrested Thursday for six counts of forgery in connection with fake money found at stores in Cedar Falls and Waterloo.

Police say this is Wehrle's second counterfeiting arrest in the past year.

According to court records, Wehrle tried to use fake $1, $5 and $10 bills at McDonald's, Burger King and Taco John's restaurants in the area. Documents show he also tried to purchase a soda using a counterfeit bill at a convenience store.

Cedar Falls Police Department Capt. Craig Berte says the case has been passed on to the U.S. Secret Service.

Wehrle is being held on $30,000 bond.
