Counterfeiter Arrested After Returning Printer With Fake Bills Article

A suspected counterfeiter left a paper trail of his handiwork when he returned a printer to Walmart and left fake bills inside it.

Jarad Carr, 37, wanted to return a printer to a Walmart in Lake Hallie, Wis., without a receipt. The store clerks refused to accept the printer but Carr insisted and would not leave. The clerks found a sheet of counterfeit bills inside the printer.

Lake Hallie Police officers were called into the store but Carr was uncooperative and refused to speak to them. They found three more counterfeit $100 bills in Carr’s possession and arrested him for attempted theft by fraud, forgery and resisting arrest.
