LAKE HALLIE, Wis., March 14 (UPI) -- Police in Wisconsin said they busted a counterfeiting suspect who allegedly returned a printer to Walmart with fake bills inside.

Lake Hallie Police Chief Cal Smokowicz said officers were called to Walmart March 7 by employees who said Jarad Carr, 37, had attempted to return a printer without a receipt or other proof of purchase and workers found a sheet of counterfeit bills inside the device, The Chippewa Herald, Chippewa Falls, Wis., reported.

Carr, who was found to be carrying three additional counterfeit $100 bills, was arrested on charges of attempted theft by fraud, forgery and resisting arrest.
