Man Chose Wrong Yard Sale to Use Fake $20s: Police

Counterfeiter printed fake money on resume paper, according to state police



    State police charged a western Pennsylvania man with passing counterfeit $20 bills at a yard sale run by the wrong woman -- a bank teller.

    Trooper Terry Geibel said the teller is trained to know the look and feel of real money.

    The Kittanning Leader-Times reports that 40-year-old Gregory Douglas of Kittanning was charged with forgery, a felony, and theft by deception, a misdemeanor. He remained jailed Friday on previous counterfeiting and other charges. There's no attorney listed for him in court records.

    Amy Miller, the teller at Citizens Bank in Kittanning, told the newspaper the bills weren't printed on "money paper. Compared to the other twenties in my bag, it was really white."

    The trooper said the money was printed on resume paper.
