D'IBERVILLE, MS (WLOX) -
D'Iberville Police believe they've found the man who was trying to spend fake cash at several stores this week. Justin Wade Vick, 26, of St. Martin is charged with two counts of uttering counterfeit currency.
On Monday, officers were called to the Walmart on Sangani Boulevard to investigate a man who was trying to use counterfeit cash. Lieutenant Terry Hines said as Walmart employees were checking the currency to see if the bills were real, the man abandoned his items at the register and left the store. Hines said the man then tried to use more counterfeit money at the Dollar Tree in D'Iberville and Ice Cream and More at the Promenade Shopping Center.
Thanks to information from the public, D'Iberville investigators tracked Vick down Wednesday at his home in St. Martin, where he was arrested. Wednesday evening, he was being held at the Harrison County Adult Detention Center under no bond.
Lieutenant Hines said Vick was already under house arrest with Mississippi Department of Corrections, and more charges could be forthcoming.
