Police Arrest Man for Passing Fake Bills
Posted on: 10/09/2012

Marietta Police have arrested a man for passing counterfeit money at a local convenience store.
 
One week ago today, police say counterfeit “twenties” were passed at the Speedway at Seventh and Greene. The first was given to a clerk at about 6 AM; the second about 7 PM. Video surveillance of those transactions showed the same two people passing bills both times.
 
Patrolman John Blasko was able to identify the two as Aaron Fulton of Wooster Street and Ashley Wynn of Columbus. They were interviewed and it was determined that the two unknowingly accepted the fake money from Brian Michael Taylor of 102 Flintwood Drive in exchange for 150 dollars worth of marijuana.
 
Police say Fulton and Wynn implicated Taylor and a second man in the production and distribution of counterfeit money. (We are not identifying the second man since, as of news time, he has not been charged.)
 
Brian Michael Taylor, 25, was arrested on a misdemeanor charge of criminal simulation following execution of  a search warrant at his Flintwood Drive home, where police seized a computer and other items allegedly used to make the fake bills. The computer is undergoing analysis by the Ohio BCI.

More charges against Taylor and more arrests are possible as the investigation continues.
