KSAL Staff - November 26, 2014 11:10 am

A Salina man was arrested after allegedly trying to make a purchase with a counterfeit $20 bill.

Salina Police allege that 49-year-old Darrell Morgenstern on Tuesday attempted to purchase a bottle of water at the Family Dollar store on West Crawford Street with a counterfeit $20 bill. The clerk suspected the bill was fake, did not allow the purchase, and called police.

Officers located Morgenstern across the street on a bicycle. After speaking with him, they executed a search warrant at his home at 1434 Franklin. A long with the original counterfeit $20 bill they also discovered three others in a trash can and also the back side of a $5 bill.

Police Captain Mike Sweeney says that the counterfeit bills were made using a color printer.

Morgenstern was booked into the Saline County Jail on charges that could include forgery and attempted theft by deception.
