MANHATTAN — Cops pulled over a driver at the Holland Tunnel Thursday afternoon and found $2,100 in counterfeit bills stashed in his glove compartment, a Port Authority spokesman said.

Omar Gray, 19, of Flatbush, was at the wheel of an Infinity sedan with tinted windows, prompting Port Authority cops to pull it over at 5:30 p.m., the spokesman said.

Officers searched the car and found 21 $100 counterfeit bills stowed in the car's door compartment, the PAPD said.

Gray and his passenger, 22-year-old Miguel Noel, were arrested at the scene and are expected to be charged with criminal possession of a forged instrument, cops said.

Gray was arrested last August in Brooklyn and charged with criminal posession of a loaded gun and some traffic violations, prosecutors said.

In May, he was again arrested and charged with criminal possession of a forged instrument, court records show.

Noel, Gray's passenger, had previously been arrested in August for dealing marijuana and January for theft, records show.
