Auburn police have charged two men with using counterfeit money.
Darrian J. Douglas, 21, of Columbus, and Terrell K. Corbit, 21, of Dothan, Ala., were jailed Thursday on charges of first-degree possession of a forged instrument.
Police said in a news release that a business in the 200 block of West Longleaf Drive reported a “suspicious incident” March 27, and that investigators recovered items of evidence that were “consistent with the crime of counterfeiting.”
A second complaint was reported Wednesday from a business in the 1700 block of South College Street. Police said an investigation involving the U.S. Secret Service developed Douglas and Corbit as suspects in both cases.
A Lee County Detention Center official said Saturday he was not allowed to release details about inmates, but the Associated Press reported that both men posted a $7,000 bond Friday and were released.
Corbit could not be reached for comment Saturday. Douglas did not respond to a message seeking comment.
