A 22-year-old Bronx man is facing felony charges for allegedly passing counterfeit $20-bills at a liquor store and a pizzeria in Putnam.
"Videotape from one of the businesses helped provide the identity of the suspect and a photo array was shown to the second business owner which resulted in a positive identification of the suspect as the person who passed the counterfeit $20-bills," Carmel Police said of the incident, which took place March 18, 2013. "The suspect was contacted, admitted to passing the $20-bills, but refused to respond to the police department. "
Detectives Stephen Kunze and Joseph LoPiccolo arrested the defendant, Daniel Golden, at about 11 p.m. Friday after the White Plains Police Department picked him up on a warrant connected to the case. He's facing two counts of felony first-degree criminal possession of a forged instrument.
Following arraignment before Carmel Town Justice Tom Jacobellis, Golden was sent to the Putnam County Correctional Facility on $5,000 bail. He is due back in court Sept. 24.
