A Sandusky boy was arrested Thursday evening when he allegedly tried to pass a counterfeit bill at a convenience store.
The boy, 17, 1900 block Pierce St., was charged with criminal simulation. It was about 8 p.m. when the boy strolled into 7-Eleven on Camp Street to make a purchase, and produced a fake $50 bill to pay for it, according to a Sandusky police report.
Officers noted the bill was torn in several places, did not feel like regular money and had no security strip or watermark.
The boy told police he got the bill from a friend in Cleveland.
Officers seized the bill and took the boy to the Erie County Detention Home.
