Man Accused Of Using Counterfeit Money [AUDIO]
A Colorado man faces charges of marijuana possession and passing around counterfeit money. Counterfeit 20s with same serial number:
David Allen Cole, 24, of Colorado Springs, is charged with obtaining property by false pretenses and possession of marijuana. According to police affidavit, Cole was arrested Thursday night after receiving a report that Cole was spending counterfeit money around town.
Casper Police made contact with Cole in a motel parking lot and during the search of his pickup, Cole allegedly told the officer that there was a bag of marijuana in the pickup, which the officer found. Cole stated that he had a medical marijuana license from Colorado, which was reportedly booked into evidence.
No counterfeit money was found in a search of Cole's motel room, but during an interview with police, Cole said he received counterfeit money for a drum set and mistakenly used one of the fake 20 dollar bills to buy food at Taco Johns around July 5th. He said he may have used a fake bill in Edgerton also.
At his initial appearance in Circuit Court Friday in Casper, Judge Steven Brown set bond at 7,500 dollars cash or surety.
