Fake money leads to man's arrest for real meth | Crime
The $100 bill a Bono man tried to spend may have been fake, but police say the drugs they found in his possession were real.
Jonesboro police arrested 38-year-old Grayson Dodson on felony drug charges Tuesday after they say he tried to pay for groceries at Cash Saver, 3106 Southwest Dr., with a counterfeit $100 bill.
While investigating the phony money charge, Officer Dustin Smith reportedly learned Dodson was on parole. According to his parole officer, Dodson “failed his last two drug tests and he was known to carry methamphetamine.”
After receiving consent, Officer Smith said he searched Dodson’s Chevy pickup truck and found 4.6 grams of methamphetamine, valued at $450. Smith said he also found a needle inside the lining of Grayson’s coat.
Grayson was taken to the Craighead County Detention Center where he was charged with possession of a controlled substance, possession of drug paraphernalia, 1st degree forgery and parole violation, all felonies.
