Man attempts to pay child support with fake $100 bill


The following incidents were among those handled by the Central Michigan Police Department and Mount Pleasant Police Department from Feb. 9 to Feb 16. 

Feb. 16

  • A 49-year-old Lake City man tried to pay child support with a fake $100 bill. The money had “For Motion Picture Use Only” printed on it and was meant to be used as a film prop. There were issues around the country with the same kind of counterfeit bills around four months ago, said Browne. The case was submitted to the Isabella County Prosecutor’s office.

Feb. 14 

  • A wall tapestry hanging in the Woldt Hall dining area valued at $100 was reported missing. The tapestry was last known to be there in January. CMUPD was still following up on suspects as of Feb. 16, said Lt. Cameron Wassman.

Feb. 12

  • At 8:30 p.m., video footage shows a group of people running up to the northwest side of the Bovee University Center. One of the individuals slipped on the sidewalk and broke a glass window, causing damage valued at $200. The individuals involved remain unknown and the damage appears accidental, Wassman said.
