WALB's Most Wanted: Travious Tyrone Posey

May 13, 2008

On tonight's Most Wanted, a man wanted for trying to pass counterfeit money.

This is 24 year old Travious Tyrone Posey. Police say last week he went to the Treasures Jewelry store at the Albany Mall and tried to make a purchase using nine bogus $100 bills.

The clerk recognized it as counterfeit money and picked up the phone to call police.

Posey, apparently wanting to take the evidence with him, asked for the money back.

The clerk wasn't buying it, so Posey left, and now police are looking for him. There are nine forgery warrants out for his arrest. Police say he didn't actually make the money, but he was trying to spend it.

So if you know where he is or where police can find him, please call Albany Crimestoppers at 436-TIPS.

You could get a reward, and they use real money.

And be sure to join Dawn Hobby Thursday night when she takes Most Wanted to the streets. You can ride along in the front seat of a patrol car and see all the action in her special report "Fugitive Takedown." That's this Thursday at 6:00.
