Counterfeit suspects arrested after speeding stop

Three Illinois men accused of passing fake $50 bill in St. Peter


"It happens now and then," Olsen said. "They usually use 20, 50 and 100 dollar bills. A lot of times you get it from someone who got it somewhere else. We're always out the money.

"This time we're out the money and caught the perpetrators too. So it's a fair trade I think."

Price and Myles were arrested in Iowa in November for passing counterfeit bills there, the Cedar Rapids Gazette reported. They were caught after they used fake cash to buy parts at one auto parts store then return the parts at another store from the same franchise in the city.
