Tyler J. Wohlust, 26, of the 2800 block of E. County Trunk S, Beloit, was arrested for uttering a forgery for his connection with the use of counterfeit money.

Wohlust is scheduled for an adjourned initial appearance in jail court on June 18.

It is a Class H Felony and, upon conviction, may include a fine up to $10,000 and up to six years in prison.

A Beloit Police Officer reported that on April 26 he had contact with the owner of the Cranston Car Wash, in the 2200 block Advance Drive. The car wash had received counterfeit bills consisting of two $20 bills, and three $10 bills. All bills did not have the serial strip and their subsequent serial numbers were identical.

On May 6 an officer met with an employee of the car wash who had exchanged $20 with an unknown male. After Wohlust tried to return with another $20 bill, the employee got his license plate number and contacted police. The vehicle was registered to an ex-girlfriend of Wohlust.

Wohlust said he accidentally received the counterfeit bills.
