Suspected Counterfeiter Caught

JOHNSON CITY — A man suspected of passing counterfeit money at a number of area businesses is under arrest.

Jeffrey Scalf of Jonesborough was arrested Monday and charged with criminal simulation.

Police say surveillance photos show Scalf using the fake bills at two grocery stores in Kingsport and Johnson City last month.

Scalf is held on $10,000 bond and will be in Sessions Court on Tuesday.
