MADISONVILLE, Ky. (AP) - Madisonville police say a resident has been charged with using counterfeit money at yard sales.

Police Officer Falon Graham says in a news release that 47-year-old Carl Winebarger of Madisonville was arrested Saturday and charged with six counts of possession of a forged instrument.

Graham says on Friday and Saturday, officers received five complaints of counterfeit money being passed at yard sales. One victim confronted a man after a counterfeit $50 bill was used. The victim got the man’s license plate number, an officer went to Winebarger’s residence Saturday and a search turned up counterfeit money.

The items taken from the yard sales were recovered and returned to the owners.
