Man accused of participating in counterfeit money ring
EAST GREENBUSH, N.Y. – Police say they have arrested a Troy
man for distributing counterfeit money and using his job to conceal the scheme.
According to East Greenbush Police, Quincy Michael, 21, is
accused of conspiring with other members of a counterfeit money ring and
accepting fake money at his check-out aisle as payment for store merchandise.
Police say that over the past two months, Michael took more
than $5,000 worth of counterfeit bills in exchange for items in the store.
Michael has been charged with grand larceny 3rd,
possession of forged instruments 1st, and conspiracy 4th.
Police say United States Secret Service agents took part in the investigation.

identify other members of the counterfeit money ring.
Police are asking anyone with information about the crime
ring to contact East Greenbush Police.
