Counterfeit bills circulating in Montevideo area
MONTEVIDEO - The Montevideo Police Department reports that counterfeit bills have been circulating recently in the area.
According to a post on the police department’s Facebook page, the fake 100- and 20-dollar bills are of poor quality, some with a blue stripe of marker and others that appear to be printed on resume paper that bare the serial number IL09880148C.
Citizens are urged to call law enforcement with any information on the counterfeit bills.
Criminal damage to property
WILLMAR - It was reported earlier this week that a business in the 300 block of Fourth Street Southwest had been vandalized, Police Chief Jim Felt said.
Graffiti was found throughout the exterior of the business. Security footage showed three male suspects vandalizing the business, Felt said.
If the suspects are found, they would likely face felony charges, he said.
Another case of vandalism was reported at 11:44 a.m. Friday in the 300 block of First Street South. Graffiti had been etched into glass of a building. Felt said it is unknown whether the two cases are related.
WILLMAR - Jesse Adolph O’Brien, 31, of Willmar made his first appearance Friday on felony charges of burglary and fleeing from a peace officer in a motor vehicle.
The charges stem from two separate incidents.
O’Brien faces a felony second-degree burglary charge and a misdemeanor theft charge for allegedly breaking into a former girlfriend’s house and stealing her TV and Playstation 3.
He faces a felony charge of fleeing a peace officer in a motor vehicle and a gross misdemeanor charge of receiving stolen property stemming from an incident in which he is alleged to have attempted to sell stolen property and later fled from a Willmar police officer.
O’Brien will make his next appearance on both charges May 4.
