Man allegedly used fake money at Casey's
A Marshalltown man was arrested Wednesday after he allegedly attempted to pay a Casey's clerk with counterfeit money.
Aaron John Frank, 38, is charged with forgery, a Class D felony.
A police report states that the clerk felt the money was suspicious and refused to accept it. An officer arrived minutes later and said the wad of cash did not look or feel like actual currency and upon further examination several of the bills had identical serial numbers.
Capt. Mike Hanken of the Marshalltown Police Department said police deal with cases of phony money a few times each year.
If convicted, Frank faces up to five years in prison.
