Suspect in Le Roy meth lab bust now accused of passing a fake $10 bill
A Le Roy man arrested last week as part of a suspected meth production ring is now accused of also passing forged currency.
Christopher J. Elmore, 31, of 14 St. Marks St., Le Roy, was arrested by Det. John Condidorio of the Le Roy PD on one count of attempted criminal possession of a forged instrument in the 1st degree and one count of criminal possession of a forged instrument in the 1st degree.
Elmore allegedly attempted to pass a forged $10 bill at a store in Le Roy on Sept. 22. When the clerk recognized the reportedly fake bill, he told Elmore the $10 bill was counterfeit. Elmore reportedly tried to take the bill back, but the clerk wouldn't let him and the clerk called police. Elmore then allegedly fled the scene. The clerk provided police with a vehicle description and license plate number.
The business had reportedly filed prior complaints of counterfeit bills coming in.
Elmore remains in Genesee County Jail on $75,000 bail from his arrest on the criminal possession of a controlled substance charge related to the alleged meth lab at 28 Clay St. No additional bail was levied on the forged instrument charges.
