Details of the case:
Around 5:41 a.m. on June 19, Isaac Conner purchased food at Clarion McDonald’s with a counterfeit U.S. $20 bill, according to a criminal complaint filed on September 18 by Trooper Kochara, of Clarion-based State Police.
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, the complaint states.
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.
Conner was arraigned on the charges at 11:00 a.m. on September 30 in front of Judge Schill.
