JAIL INMATES FACES ADDITIONAL FORGERY CHARGES RELATED TO PASSING COUNTERFEIT CURRENCY
Lonnie Michael Tolliver
A Baxter County man, 32 year old LONNIE MICHAEL TOLLIVER, already in custody in the Detention Center on Forgery charges related to the passing of counterfeit currency, has now been charged additionally with four more counts of felony Forgery in the Second Degree and four counts of misdemeanor Theft of Property by the Sheriff’s Office.
The newest charges stem from investigations into counterfeit $20.00 bills being passed at the Dollar General Store in Salesville on January 10, 2014, when one counterfeit bill was passed, and February 2, 2014 when three more counterfeit bills were passed. Video surveillance from the store’s security camera system helped identify LONNIE MICHAEL TOLLIVER as the suspect. He later admitted to investigators with the Sheriff’s Office and the Arkansas State Police that he had used a printer to make approximately $100.00 in fake $20.00 bills, each of which contained the same serial number.
Bond for TOLLIVER on these additional charges was set at $100,000, and he will appear in the Circuit Court to answer on February 27th.
