Two 20-year-old men were nabbed after allegedly attempting to pass fake $100 bills at Fairfield County gas stations.

Tevon Johnson and Nasia Battle, both of Brooklyn, were arrested on Wednesday, Feb. 12, after Wilton Police were notified by Westport Police that two men in a black Honda were attempting to use fake $100 bills at gas stations, said Capt. Robert Cipolla of the Wilton Police Department.

According to Cipolla, shortly after receiving the notification, a clerk at the Gulf Station on Danbury Road, called police to report the two men had just attempted to use a fake $100 bill.

Officers flooded the area and the car was located at Wheels, also on Danbury Road, with a man inside attempting to use fake $100 bills, Cipolla said.

Officers talked with the driver, Battle, and Johnson, who was the passenger, as he left the store.

A search found that both men were in possession of several fake $100 bills and were arrested, police said.

Both were charged with forgery and larceny. Battle was also charged with driving without a license.

Both are being held on a $15,000 bond.
