3 men accused of going on shopping spree with fake money in Coventry
COVENTRY, R.I. (WLNE) — Coventry police said they arrested three men accused of going on a shopping spree with fake money.
Police said they responded to the Walmart on Centre of New England Boulevard just after 2:30 p.m. Friday.
When they arrived at the store, police said two men had left in a car that was driven by a third man.
The men, later identified as Markquise Robinson, Davon Turbe — both from Brooklyn, New York — and Kevon Ferrell, of Hartford, Connecticut, were stopped on New London Turnpike.
After searching the car, they found 195 counterfeit $20 bills from the three suspects.
Police said the men are accused of committing similar acts in East Greenwich before going to Coventry and in Virginia, days before that.
All three men were charged with possession of counterfeit bill or note and conspiracy.
Monday, they faced a Kent County District Court judge where their bail was set for each at $10,000 with surety.
