Man charged in connection with counterfeit bill found in returned printer

RICHMOND — The discovery of a counterfeit $20 bill left in a printer that was returned to Walmart last month helped lead police to the arrest of a Richmond man.

Dennarius J. Barnett, 19, of Maple Hill Drive, was charged Thursday with three counts of first-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument.

A Walmart employee reported Nov. 7 finding a $20 counterfeit in a printer that was allegedly returned by Barnett. Two other counterfeit bills also were located that were believed to have fallen from the printer, according to a Richmond police news release.

On Thursday, RPD officers responded to a call informing them that the man who returned the printer was back at Walmart.

Barnett was identified as the suspect, and after interviewing him, the officers charged him in connection with the counterfeit bills. He was taken to the Madison County Detention Center.

Wallet stolen from Kroger gas kiosk

Richmond police are looking for a man who took a Kroger customer’s wallet that was accidentally left on a ledge near the gas kiosk.

The woman realized she’d left her wallet behind Tuesday after paying for gas, but when she returned to the station, it was gone, according to an RPD news release.

A man was seen taking the wallet. He was a white man in his 40s or 50s wearing blue jeans, a black hooded Estill County jacket and brown boots, according to the RPD. He left in a new model, white extended-cab pickup truck, similar to a Chevrolet Colorado or GMC Canyon with a sunroof and a tool box in the bed, according to the release.

Other thefts:

• A complainant told police Tuesday that an orange North Face backpack was stolen from his vehicle while it was parked behind the Paddy Wagon bar on Main Street during the night.

There were no signs of forced entry, according to the RPD.

The backpack contained an Apple MacBook Pro laptop computer, a worn pair of tan leather gloves and a pen light. The estimated loss is $1,799.

• An employee of Qualex Machining, 1180 Berea Road, reported Tuesday that his dark blue Samsung Galaxy IIIS cell phone with an Otter Box cover, worth $600, was stolen that morning from his desk.

Anyone with information regarding the above listed cases is asked to call the Richmond Police Department at 623-1162.
