Officers were dispatched to the Bed Bath and Beyond on Tuesday evening for a report of a man trying to pass fake $100 bills.

Upon arrival, officers located the man and three other suspects inside of a vehicle in the parking lot. 

The suspects were identified as Kyree Toney, Denokey Midderhoff, Darnell Lemons, and Marquise Garner.

According to the criminal complaint, the vehicle smelled of marijuana. Due to the fact that the occupants of the vehicle were suspects in a forgery crime ring, they were searched prior to arrest.
