No Jail Time For Man Involved In Fake Money ScamPosted: Updated:
There's no jail time for a Glenfield man, who was accused of trying to use movie prop money to buy used computer equipment.
On Monday, 20 year old Matthew Bush was sentenced in Jefferson County Court to three years probation.
Bush pleaded guilty in September to criminal possession of a forged instrument.
In June, a couple complained Bush tried to pay them with two fake $100 bills while they were selling him their son's computer equipment in a restaurant parking lot on the 900 block of Arsenal Street in Watertown.
He took the money back after they confronted him.
City police said they took over 180 counterfeit $100 bills from Bush, plus some counterfeit $20 bills.
7 News had a chance to see the bills. "In God We Must" was written on the back of the counterfeit $100 dollar bills. There were Chinese characters on the back of the $20s. The bills were actually movie props which are easily purchased online.
Police said Bush admitted to buying the fake money online.
