Portland police said they caught a man with hundreds of phony $20 bills and the tools to make fake prescriptions.
Kirk Allen was arrested near a Walgreens on Southwest Capitol Highway Sunday.
He was arraigned in court Monday and bail was set at $100,000.
According to court documents, police were called to the store after a woman tried to pick up a forged prescription.
When officers arrived, they said a man got out of the car and walked away at a brisk pace, carrying a backpack.
Police said the driver consented to a search of the car, which turned up methamphetamine and drug paraphernalia, along with four counterfeit $20 bills.
A K-9 team was called out to search for the passenger. An officer stopped someone who fit his descriptions.
The man at first claimed to be coming from a bar, but was later identified as Allen and arrested.
A backpack was found nearby and court documents show it contained 332 counterfeit $20 bills, six photo IDs from various stations, prescription paper, check paper, laminate paper, templates, tools, a camera and a W2 form in Allen's name.
In an interview with Secret Service agents, Allen admitted the backpack was his, according to court records.
He is due back in court Feb. 5.
