Man charged with passing fake money

A 69-year-old Oceana man has been charged with multiple counts of fraudulent schemes and counterfeiting. Billie Conner Counts waived his right to a preliminary hearing Tuesday before Raleigh County Magistrate Tomi Peck.  

His attorney, Gerald Hayden, said Counts is not actually charged with the act of counterfeiting; he is charged with passing fake money.

Hayden said Counts is accused of passing fake bills on three separate occasions. Because Counts waived his preliminary hearing, his case will now be sent to Raleigh County grand jury.
