Eleven $20.00 bills had been used to purchase items. All of these bills had the same serial number and were determined to be counterfeit.
The items that had been purchased with the counterfeit money were then returned and the suspect obtained genuine currency from Wal-Mart for the returned merchandise. A money transfer was also made using the genuine currency by the suspect.
After further investigation, Detective Leo Mangus with the Plymouth Police Department located 25 year old Brian W. Lindsey in LaPorte on Tuesday, December 18th. After questioning, Lindsey admitted to knowingly using the counterfeit money at Wal-Mart. He was then booked into the Marshall County Jail for the offense of Forgery as a class C Felony. His bond was set at $10,000.00 cash.
