Suspected counterfeiter arrested trying to return evidence

RICHMOND, Ky. (AP) - Police say a central Kentucky man was arrested after allegedly returning a printer to Walmart that contained a counterfeit bill.

The Richmond Register cited a statement from police in reporting that 19-year-old Dennarius J. Barnett was charged on Thursday with criminal possession of a forged instrument.

Police said that Barnett allegedly returned the printer last month to the retailer and a store employee found a $20 counterfeit bill in it. When Barnett returned to the store on Thursday, police say employees called officers who interviewed Barnett before arresting him.

Police say he was taken to the Madison County Detention Center. It was unclear whether Barnett had an attorney.
