A pair of wild cats from Kentucky were busted Sunday in Chicago with $50,000 in counterfeit bills, three bottles of “date rape” drug, weapons and fake Ids at the downtown Hyatt Regency, the Sun-Times reports.
It’s not clear what exactly Jeffrey Mundt, 38, and Joseph Banis, 38, planned to do with their gear, but the pair got caught after they tried changing a fake $100 bill with a doorman, cops said.
Lesson: always tip the doorman, and use real money.
The men are scheduled to appear in Chicago court Tuesday to face a host of charges.
They could face federal charges because of the counterfeit cash.
