Man Charged With Passing Counterfeit Money
A Winston-Salem man was arrested Tuesday for passing counterfeit money in the Seven Lakes area.
Jermaine Michael Williamson, 27, of 5201 Larkspar Road, Winston-Salem, was charged with one count of felony uttering forged instrument, according to a press release. The charge stemmed from an incident that happened on Dec. 21, 2009 when the Moore County Sheriff’s Office received a report of someone passing a counterfeit $100 bill at the Dollar General in Seven Lakes, according to the release.
Sheriff’s deputies responded to the location, spoke with Williamson and seized the counterfeit money. Earlier that day, Williamson tried to pass a counterfeit bill at a store in Biscoe, according to the release. Williamson was arrested by the Biscoe Police Department at the Seven Lakes Dollar General, according to the release.
He was arrested by Sheriff’s investigators Tuesday and placed in jail under a bail of $250,000.
The United States Secret Service assisted in the investigation that is still on-going.
