Police Make Arrests For Alleged Counterfeit Bills

The Marion City Police Department says that on March 30, at approximately 8:36pm, a male subject entered the Speedway gas station on Delaware Avenue and attempted to purchase merchandise with counterfeit $20 bills.

The clerk told police she noticed a difference in the bills and verified they were not legitimate when the bills were marked with a currency pen. The clerk kept the bills and the subject paid for his purchase with real money.

According to police, the suspect was later identified as Joey Lee Callahan, 23, of 253 Libby Lane.

As the investigation continued, investigators say it was learned that several of the bills had been passed at area businesses.

A search warrant was executed at 1301 Crescent Heights Road by Marion County Sheriff’s deputies, Marion police officers and MARMET drug detectives. Investigators say they found more counterfeit bills, marijuana and heroin at that location.

Arrested at the apartment were Callahan and Kayla Rae Hayslip, 22 years old, of 1301 Crescent Heights Road. Both Callahan and Hayslip were arrested for possession of drugs and forgery.

In addition, on March 31, at approximately 2:18pm, deputies arrested a third and final suspect. David Charles Daniels, 25, of 125 Hague Avenue, Columbus was arrested for forgery.

All three cases have been submitted to the Marion County Prosecutor’s Office for formal charges.
