A local teen was charged with passing counterfeit money at the Warren County A&L Fair after he was identified moments after he passed his latest fake bill Wednesday night.The suspected counterfeiter, Jack Dylan Howard, 18, is charged with one count of criminal simulation for an incident that happened at the Band Booster Club food booth Wednesday night. Sheriff Jackie Matheny says he will also likely be charged with the passing two fake $20 bills earlier this week at the Lucky CIC food booth.The teen was charged after a volunteer at the Band Booster Club food booth discovered a $20 bill taken there was fake.“Everyone has those pens and they’re checking them closely,” said Matheny, noting food booths were being extra careful to check $20 bills since two fake bills were passed at the Lucky booth. Matheny said the pen, which shows if a bill is counterfeit, showed the $20 bill was fake.
