JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) – A man suspected of possessing fake money meant for the movies faces real forgery charges.

Thursday night Jonesboro police arrested Earl Clark, 21, of Jonesboro on suspicion of first degree forgery.

According to the initial incident report, Clark was a passenger in a car stopped for a broken tail light at the intersection of Word and Main Streets.

The officer reported smelling marijuana and called for a K-9 unit.

After the canine reportedly “alerted” on the vehicle, a search was conducted and officers found “shake,” or small amounts of marijuana in the floor and seats of the car.

Officers then searched Clark along with the driver and another passenger, 21-year-old Marvin Ross and Dontra Webb, both of Jonesboro.

During the search, the officers found three $100 bills with the words “For Motion Picture Use Only” folded up inside a wad of $1 bills in Clark’s pocket, the report stated.

When asked about the counterfeit bills, Clark reportedly told the officer he had purchased the “prop money” for videos he made.

Officers arrested all three men and transported them to the Craighead County Detention Center.

Ross was cited for driving while intoxicated-drugs, no proof of liability insurance, and defective tail lamps and reflectors. At last report, he was being held in lieu of $1,400 surety bond.

Webb was arrested for a probation violation and a hold was placed on him.

Clark was charged with forgery and was being held to await a probable cause hearing.
