Man Accused of Passing Fake $100 Bill at Store

27-year-old Patrick Coleman of St. Albans, Vermont, has been charged

A Vermont man is facing charges after allegedly using counterfeit money to buy something at a store.

Police in St. Albans say they responded to the Breakyard Quick Stop on Federal Street on Sunday after the store reported someone gave them a fake $100 bill.

Officers recognized the suspect, 27-year-old Patrick Coleman of St. Albans, and arrested him on an unrelated arrest warrant for failing to appear on a heroin possession charge. He was also charged with false pretense in connection with passing the counterfeit $100 bill.

Coleman was arraigned Monday, but it's not clear what the outcome of the arraignment was, or if he has an attorney.
