Police: Wisconsin man left counterfeit $100 bills in printer he tried to return

LAKE HALLIE, Wis. — Police say a Wisconsin man faces charges after trying to return a printer to a Walmart store that contained a sheet with two photocopied $100 bills.

Lake Hallie Police Chief Cal Smokowicz said police found three more counterfeit $100 bills on the man, who also was wanted on burglary and armed robbery warrants.

The Chippewa Herald reported that police were called to the Lake Hallie Walmart on Thursday because the 37-year-old West Bend man tried to return the printer without receipts or proof he bought there. After being told he was under arrest, police say, the man physically resisted officers at the store's service counter.

He was jailed on suspicion of attempted theft by fraud, forgery and resisting arrest. Police are looking for a second man who was with him.
