An alleged attempt to pass phony bills landed a LaFollette man in jail last week.

Reports of a male subject attempting to pass counterfeit money at the Cumberland Crossing BP surfaced last Friday evening.

During his investigation LaFollette Police Officer Joseph Brown located Robert Allan Myracle, 51, of 127 Ridenour Lane, Apartment 201, at his home.

According to Brown’s report, when confronted about the incident at the convenience store Myracle advised that the money was counterfeit.  Records indicate Myracle was in possession of $700 in fake money.

Myracle was arrested and charged with criminal simulation.  He is scheduled to appear in court on Friday.
