Blotter: Counterfeit money cases, stolen male enhancement pills


Counterfeit $1, $5, $10 bills found around town

A 37-year-old man was found with counterfeit $1 and $5 bills during a traffic stop at The Third Street Car Wash on 3430 W Third Street, police said.

Gregory C. Baker was pulled over by Bloomington Police on Saturday afternoon after an officer noticed his license plate did not match the vehicle Baker was driving. 

Baker said he had just purchased the vehicle, but the vehicle was found to be bought in February, Bloomington Police Department Lt. John Kovach said.

A search of Baker's name did not yield a driver's license in his name. While police searched Baker, they found the counterfeit bills. Baker said he got the money from his job.

About 90 minutes later at the McDonald's on 1919 S Walnut Street, an unknown person paid with a $10 bill with "This is not legal. It is to be used in motion pictures" written on it. 


Male enhancement pills stolen from Lovers Playground 

Multiple pills sold under the name "Jackhammer Platinum Hard At Work" were reported stolen Saturday night from Lovers Playground on 1013 N College Ave.

Kovach said a store employee described the suspect as a white male in his 20s, who is between 5 feet 9 inches and 5 feet 10 inches tall and about 140 pounds, with blonde hair. 

The employee said they didn't know how many pills the man stole from the store.

Police are still looking for the man.
