Three Arrested in Sioux Falls on Counterfeit Charges
Three people from Omaha are facing counterfeit-related charges after they were caught over the weekend with what Sioux Falls police say were counterfeit bills.
Officer Sam Clemens says the first instance was reported over the weekend at Club David on West 11th Street, where a bartender noticed two men and a woman were buying drinks, with the woman paying each time with a $20 bill.
He says the bartender eventually noticed the bills didn’t look or feel normal, so police were called.
Arrested on charges of possessing a forged instrument and passing a forged instrument were 18-year-old Amann Treboughten Johnson, 22-year-old Candace Nicole Evans and 37-year-old Eduardo Anchondo-Arzola, all of Omaha.
Clemens says similar bills were later located at several fast-food restaurants and other businesses, notably along South Minnesota Avenue.
He says Evans had a counterfeit $100 bill, and he says eight of the bogus twenties had been passed at Club David.
