YOU READ IT HERE FIRST: A Port Authority Police traffic stop outside the Holland Tunnel turned up $2,100 in counterfeit $100 bills, authorities said this morning.

The driver, who was cited in Brooklyn last month for having tinted windows on his Infinity, was stopped for the same infraction around 5:30 p.m. yesterday, the Port Authority’s Joseph Pentangelo told CLIFFVIEW PILOT this morning.

When Officer John Defillipo looked a little closer, he found a fat stack of “Benjamins” ( photo, above ).

The driver, 19-year-old Omar Gray, and his passenger, Noel Miguel, 22, both of Flatbush, were charged with first-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, he said.
