DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) -Dothan cops bust him for bogus bills, now he is headed to prison

A Quincy, Florida man will serve 18 months for passing counterfeit bills. 61-year old Morris Bryan Parmer pleaded guilty last week before a federal judge in Montgomery.

According to court records, on August 4, 2018, the Dothan Police Department conducted a traffic stop on a vehicle occupied by Parmer and his co-defendant, Tyra Keisha Denise Jefferson, 24, from Tallahassee. That's when officers discovered approximately fifty-five counterfeit $100 bills and three counterfeit $20 bills, along with materials used to manufacture those bogus bills.

Federal investigators claim Parmer and Jefferson had already passed some $400 work of counterfeit bills at Home Depot in Lake City, Florida.

Jefferson has also pleaded guilty and will be sentenced later.

U.S. Attorney Louis Franklin credits Dothan police officers for their assistance in this case.
