Counterfeit bills are passed off at a local bar, then a warning from that bar to another bar leads to an arrest and the discovery of even more money in fake cash.
The whole ordeal started last week at Fast Eddy's Bar on North Avenue.
When they made their bank deposit, the teller broke the news to them that some of their money, two $20 bills, were fake.
The bar owner says they called their partnering bar, Quincy's on Main Street, warning them to be on the lookout for fake $20 bills...
and check each one with a counterfeit detector pen.
Soon after they got one.
A manager at Quincy's called police and they arrested 27–year old Carlos Daniel Sierra.
Officers also found more counterfeit dollars on him too, and he is currently being held at the Mesa County Jail.
Police are still not saying if Sierra was the person who used fake bills at Fast Eddy's as well but are looking to see if he could be connected to more counterfeit crimes.
