Craigslist ad leads to suspected counterfeiter

Updated:

BULLHEAD CITY, Ariz. (AP) - Bullhead City police say a Craigslist ad for a cellphone is what led detectives to a suspected counterfeiter.

Dean Everett Boyer was arrested earlier this week on charges of forgery, fraudulent schemes and possession of a forging instrument. He was booked into the Mohave County jail in Kingman.

Police say a search of Boyer's home turned up a forged driver's license, license plates, a concealed weapons permit and several counterfeit $100 and $10 bills.

The investigation began when the 38-year-old Boyer answered an ad to buy a woman's cellphone. He's accused of giving the woman a $100 bill that turned out to be counterfeit.

Police say they tracked down Boyer after the woman provided them with the license plate number of the man who bought her phone.

It's not clear whether Boyer has an attorney.
