Counterfeit bills reported in Taylorsville


(Updated July 17, 11:35 a.m.)    

Bogus bills passed at convenience store

Taylorsville Police Chief Dennis James told The Times that two separate instances of people passing counterfeit $20 bills have been reported in a store in the town’s West End section last week.

On Saturday, July 12, and again on Sunday, July 13, 2014, clerks at the Market Basket #3 (Shell gas station) on West Main Avenue told police that people tried to give them phony bills in transactions. The bills were tested with a counterfeit detection marker and failed.

In the July 12 case, the man told police that a friend had paid him the bill in exchange for goods.

The next day, a woman came to the gas station and presented a fake $20 bill. She told police she got the $20 from an ATM in China Grove, NC.

No criminal charges were mentioned in either report.
