MPD Wagner 5 18MADISONVILLE, Ky. (5/18/17) — City police responded to a call at Ideal on North Main Street after convenience store workers reported a young man tried to pay for cigars and a Mountain Dew with a fake $100 bill.

Madisonville Police Department indicated the workers said the bill felt fake based on texture and appearance.

Officer Corey Miller noted in the arrest report the bill had “For Motion Picture Use Only” printed in four different places in addition to “This note is not legal, it is to be used for motion pictures.”

After speaking to the suspect identified as 20-year-old Jacob Michael Wagner of Earlington, MPD reported the man said he received the bill for mowing a yard from another male individual, who he could not identify, according to the report.

Wagner was charged Wednesday with first-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument and served an outstanding warrant on a misdemeanor theft charge. He was listed as being held Thursday night in Hopkins County Jail on $1,000 cash bond.
