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.

Officers said employees refused to accept the printer, but Carr insisted and would not leave.

Smokowicz said Carr refused to speak to officers and resisted arrest.

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.
