Suspect arrested in counterfeit case

Police continue to report a steady flow of counterfeit hundred dollar bills around the country. The latest sightings on Tuesday occurred in Belmopan, Belize City and Punta Gorda, including two bogus bluenotes collected at the B.D.F. camp in that southern town. One major development in the case is the arrest of a suspect, twenty-eight year old Luis Arzu of Orange Walk. On Sunday it is alleged that Arzu used an imitation hundred to buy beers at a local bar. He has been charged with obtaining property by deception and possession of counterfeit currency.
