Police have charged a Pennsylvania man with purchasing a laptop with counterfeit money after he was caught trying to return the computer by a local store's video surveillance system.
According to The Beaver County Times, Super Kmart employees contacted police when Craig Anthony Moore, 28, attempted to return a $350 laptop in exchange for money after he had allegedly purchased it earlier that day with counterfeit bills.
Police told the newspaper they were able to positively identify Moore from the store's video surveillance footage, which showed him buying the laptop. The U.S. Secret Service has been contacted and is investigating whether Moore is manufacturing counterfeit money.
Moore is facing several charges, including forgery, theft by deception, receiving stolen property and driving with a suspended license, the source reports.
