CINNAMINSON, N.J. – Authorities said a New Jersey man charged with shoplifting paid his bail with phony money and returned to demand a refund. The man, 25, was arrested July 7, accused of shoplifting at a clothing store and supermarket in Cinnaminson.
He was locked up for having two outstanding warrants and paid $400 bail in cash. Police later realized the money was fake.
Before they could find him, the man showed up and argued his bail should have been only $200. He wanted $200 back.
He was charged with counterfeiting and put in Burlington County Jail on $5,000 bail.
