MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) - A southern Oregon man accused of using not one but two fake $50 bills in an attempt to pay for an order of potato wedges has been indicted on forgery and related counts.

The Mail Tribune reports (https://is.gd/cVyB7a) that 29-year-old Juvenal Adan Vega of Medford is accused of trying to use the bogus bills in early December at Angelo’s Pizza.

A police affidavit says a pizza parlor employee used a special marking pen to determine the first $50 was forged. Ditto for the second.

Police say Vega fled once he heard police had been called. He was arrested Dec. 20.

Still in jail on Thursday, Vega was indicted in Jackson County Circuit Court via television monitor. He entered not guilty pleas.
