The Cairo Police Department arrested two individuals Thursday afternoon who they say attempted to pass off the bill at multiple local business. Investigators later determined the bill to be fraudulent.

When police intercepted the suspect’s vehicle, they found Damon Randolph and April Kimberly Gray. According to a police incident report, Randolph admitted that he had attempted to use the bill at another gas station. Police then had Randolph return to the Easy Stop to speak with the store clerk.

Interim police chief Giovannie Santos said materials used to manufacture counterfeit bills were found inside the suspects’ vehicle.
Santos said the methodology used to create the bills is “not common to the majority of cases of counterfeiting” in the area.

Santos said the specific materials used to create the bills will not be disclosed at this time.
