An Iowa man has been accused of passing out counterfeit bills at Tobacco Outlet.

Tyrone Jones, 33, was charged March 7 with forgery.

Coralville police officers were dispatched Sept. 7, 2012, after receiving a report of a man passing out counterfeit bills. Jones was located with an allegedly  counterfeit bill that reportedly matched the serial number of the bill that was passed at Tobacco Outlet, the police complaint said.

Jones reportedly told police he entered Tobacco Outlet on Sept. 6, 2012, and used the $20 bill, but he did not know it was counterfeit. Jones was reportedly identified as the subject that passed out the counterfeit bills, the complaint said.

Forgery is a Class-C felony.
