Man Arrested After Using Counterfeit Cash
Robert Lyle Guthrie was arraigned Saturday after he was arrested for allegedly making purchases with counterfeit bills and trying to destroy evidence.
Guthrie, 42, allegedly bought a pair of work gloves at the Dollar General in the Cove Terrace Shopping Center using a fake $10 bill. The store’s manager called police, who found Guthrie locked in the bathroom of a Century 21 Real Estate office also located in the shopping center.
When Guthrie exited the bathroom and was taken into custody, officers found two counterfeit $5 bills in his mouth along with a real $5 bill and two $1 bills. They also discovered that Guthrie had purchased a pair of blue jeans at the shopping center’s Army Store with a fake $20 bill.
Guthrie remained in the Coryell County Jail Monday night on $20,000 bond.
