Triple Fake Fakes Fakers

Police: Man uses fake money to buy fake drugs from fake cop

A man was arrested after police said he used counterfeit money to purchase fake OxyContin pills from a fake undercover officer. Unicoi County Sheriff's deputies arrested a 21-year-old man on Tuesday and charged him with criminal conspiracy with schedule II drugs, forgery and criminal simulation, also know as faking a crime.

Investigator Floyd Blogers said the fake officer met with several fake people at a mobile home park and arranged for the suspect and another man to come to Unicoi to buy 76 fake OxyContin pills for $4,875.

Officers said it was "obviously fake money" with some bills printed on just one side. (Duh!)

Authorities also tracked down a fake device believed used to make the counterfeit money.

The Johnson City Press reported officers expect to make more arrests in the case, some of which may be fake.
