Counterfeit money surging in Conway
Family Dead Virginia
There’s a lot of counterfeit money changing hands in Conway in the last few days, and merchants and shoppers are urged to take a close look at their bills.

So far, the counterfeit bills have been passed — sometimes successfully — at local McDonald’s, Bear’s Den, Domino’s and Fu Lin restaurants, at a Murphy Oil gas station and at Conway Corp. A woman got a fake $20 with her change from the Salem Road Kroger on Monday (the manager checked the money in the register and gave her a real $20 when she came back), and a German Town Apartments maintenance worker found several fake $20s outside an apartment, some of which hadn’t been cut out of the sheet they were printed on.

$20, $50 and $100 bills have been collected as evidence.

Real money is printed on paper made from cotton and linen, unlike office paper that is made from plant cellulose. The types of paper “feel” different, and markers used to detect a fake bill use ink that chemically reacts with cellulose but not cotton or linen.

Some of the counterfeit money going around is printed on regular cellulose paper, Det. Brian Williams said, and it’s fairly easy to tell these by feel. But some are made by bleaching $1 or $5 bills and printing $50s or $100s on them. These will pass the marker test, “but they don’t look as good as genuine currency and you’ll probably still see some ink from the $5,” Williams said.

Also, two counterfeit $100s collected by CPD have “For Motion Picture Use Only” printed on them and without the language “Federal Reserve Note.” This is “prop money,” which can legally be bought online. In addition to bearing language saying it’s for movies or “not legal tender,” prop money isn’t — and legally can’t — be an actual copy of genuine bills. The artists who design a prop $100, for example, draw their own Ben Franklin (with varying success) and might draw different buildings on the notes.

The descriptions of the suspects who have passed, or tried to pass, counterfeit bills vary. They have been males and females of several ethnicities, Williams said.

The U.S. Secret Service investigates counterfeit currency claims, and “they’ve been made aware of the magnitude of the problem here,” Williams added. “The main thing is to know it’s out there and for business owners to tell their employees that it’s out there.”

Morris is charged with attempted kidnapping, attempted rape and criminal impersonation.

The first victim was a 15-year-old boy who told officers Morris drove up next to him on Gee Street asking him for directions. Morris kept asking the boy to get into the car with him. The young boy managed to run away and contacted Jonesboro Police.

The second victim, an 11-year-old boy said that Morris drove up to the playground on Alpine, told him he was a cop and asked him to get into the car. He refused and also managed to get away to contact police.

Sgt. Doug Formon said the descriptions given by both boys helped in Morris’s arrest.

“Both of them were able to get a good description of the car and a good description of the suspect, especially the first one who got the tattoo description” said Formon.

According to Jonesboro Police, there have been 8 incidents reported since January 2009, where the suspect claimed to be a police officer.
Winfield chief Dobbs killed in accident
Former Winfield Police Chief Larry Dobbs was struck and killed by a truck in an accident that occurred on K-96 Highway in the Wichita area Monday afternoon.

The 61-year-old Dobbs, according to the Kansas Highway Patrol, had stepped out of his vehicle to pick up debris on the roadway.

Another vehicle had lost a load of drywall on the road around 3 p.m. and Dobbs was helping to pick it up, according to Wichita-area news reports.

He was standing in a median when a 2006 Mack truck swerved to avoid hitting the vehicles that had come to a stop on the shoulder of the highway. He was struck by that truck and died at the scene.

Dobbs was currently living in El Dorado, according to the highway patrol report. He has family who continue to live in Cowley County.

Dobbs served as Winfield chief in the early 2000s and was succeeded by Jerry DeVore.
Family of 5 shot to death at Virginia home
Occupy Oakland Police Officers
A family of five, including three children, was found shot to death inside their home in a quiet area of north-central Virginia, and police would not say Monday whether they’re seeking a suspect in the case.
A family member discovered the bodies of the two adults, both 35, and three school-aged children Sunday night, according to the Culpeper County Sheriff’s Office.
The shootings are being treated as homicides, with the Virginia State Police assisting, Detective Angela Deavers with the Culpeper County Sheriff’s Office said. Deavers said she did not have other details, and the state agency confirmed only that it is assisting.
The three-bedroom house sits on about an acre of land just outside the town limits of Culpeper, according to Culpeper County property records. Culpeper, a town of about 15,000 people is known for its quaint downtown and Civil War history.
“This is definitely a shock to the community, for sure,” Culpeper Mayor Michael Olinger said. “Very seldom do we have a murder in Culpeper or any kind of activity such as this.” He said he did not know the victims.
