Arrest made in local counterfeit $100 bills
Multiple Grays Harbor police departments received reports of fake $100.00 bills being passed at various businesses throughout the county during the week of October 15th through the 20th. Locations included businesses in Brady, Montesano, and Aberdeen. In Aberdeen, the bills were not found until deposits were made by businesses at local banks.
Through video surveillance, investigators were able to identify two suspects passing these fake bills. One suspect was identified as a 54 year old transient from Rochester. The other suspect was the man’s girlfriend, a 41 year old woman who was also transient. The man turned himself in to investigators over the weekend and admitted to passing the money. His girlfriend is still at large and a warrant has been requested for her arrest.
