Rimersburg Man Accused of Passing Counterfeit $20 Bill at McDonald’s
According to court documents, Clarion-based State Police filed the following criminal charges against 25-year-old Isaac Lucas Conner on September 18:
– Forgery – Unauthorized Act In Writing, Misdemeanor 1
– Possession Instrument Of Crime W/Intent, Misdemeanor 1
– Theft By Deception-False Impression, Misdemeanor 3
The charges stem from an incident that occurred on June 19 at McDonald’s located on Perkins Road in Clarion.
According to a criminal complaint filed on September 18 by Trooper Kochara, of PSP Clarion, around 5:41 a.m. on June 19, Isaac Conner purchased food at Clarion McDonald’s with a counterfeit U.S. $20 bill.
The complaint states that Conner paid for the food with the fake bill, received valid U.S. currency in change, then received the food that he ordered and fled the scene.
It was learned that Conner was the manager at a known convenience store, and he was interviewed at the store later that day.
According to the complaint, Conner claimed that he did not know the money was counterfeit.
When Trooper Kochara requested to search Conner’s wallet for additional counterfeit money, Conner consented. He had five more counterfeit $20 bills on his person, the complaint states.
Conner related to Trooper Kochara afterwards that employees at the known convenience store are properly trained to identify counterfeit currency.
A preliminary arraignment for Conner is scheduled for 11:00 a.m. on September 30 in front of Magisterial District Judge Timothy P. Schill.
