A Blue Earth County Sheriff’s Deputy discovered several thousand dollars in counterfeit cash while making a traffic stop in Mankato Wednesday afternoon. The car was stopped for speeding on Highway 22 at around 1:20pm. Thousands of dollars in counterfeit $50 bills was found when the car was searched, along with stolen property and a small amount of marijuana. Authorities had just recently received a report of a counterfeit 50 being used at the Quick Mart in St. Peter as well, and the clerk was able to get a license plate number and description of the vehicle, which matched the one pulled over for speeding. The 3 men arrested for the crime are from Illinois: 33-year-old Delonno Armel Myles, 31-year-old Charles Price, and 21-year-old Dennis Deandre Crisler. Price and Myles were reportedly arrested in Iowa in November for passing counterfeit bills there as well.
