CARY — Police from Cary and Apex have charged a 29-year-old Colorado man with passing phony $100 bills in their towns and having another mans military identification card.
Adrian Loran Lewis, who is listed on arrest warrants served Thursday as living in Colorado Springs, was also charged with possession of a stolen Volkswagen Jetta in Cary.
Apex police said in an arrest warrant that Lewis tried to buy a womans BMW with 31 bogus bills.
Cary officers said that Lewis got a room at a Red Roof Inn and paid for it with a counterfeit $100. That led to charges of attempting to obtain property by false pretenses, actually obtaining it, possession of more than five counterfeit instruments (which is a threshold set by state law) and identity theft.
Apex police filed a charge of attempting to obtain property by false pretenses.
Lewis was held on $100,000 bail pending an appearance in court in Raleigh on Friday.
