And in this week’s edition of how not to get away with a crime:
A 32 year-old criminal is behind bars after he used counterfeit money to buy things he’d need to print fake money, later returned to the electronics store to try to return those items for real money, and then called police on the store manager when they wouldn’t oblige.
The investigation actually started a few months prior, police said, when a male and female were arrested after they were caught with more than $3,000 in counterfeit bills. A subsequent investigation helped police uncover the names of several other people who were involved in printing the faux tender and eventually, they found themselves on the trail of Daniel Fry.
Fry was the genius who called the sheriff’s department on that Radio Shack employee, and when they arrived to register his “complaint” they instead arrested him on a small pile of warrants.
What’s funnier, is that the now-defendant was trying to return the items for cash so he could use that money to pay a criminal defense attorney who was helping him on a different case.
