Albany police investigate counterfeit cash

Albany -- More bogus bills pop up in Albany after three were indicted for counterfeit earlier last week.

An employee at the Napa Auto Parts store on Sylvester Road said a man tried to purchase some car parts with what he thought was a fake one-hundred dollar bill.

He called police and gave them the license plate of that customer. Albany police later tracked that driver down at Dawson and Robin Hood Road.

He wasn't arrested, but a Secret Service Agent confiscated four $100 bills from him to be field tested. This case is still under investigation.

On Thursday, 38-year-old Dennis Richardson, 23-year-old LaShonda Taylor and 35-year-old Catrice Givens all were indicted on counterfeiting charges in connection with a raid January 16th.
