Sag Harbor Cops: Man Used Counterfeit $100 Bills at Village Businesses

Ozone Park man arrested and charged with possessing forgeries.

Sag Harbor Village police arrested a man last week who they say used counterfeit $100 bills at Division Street businesses back in January.

Police said that midmorning on Jan. 7, Daniel L. Gonzalez, 32, of Ozone Park, entered Cavaniola's Gourmet Cheese Shop on Division Street and used a $100 bill to make a purchase. He then tried to do the same a few doors down, at Sag Harbor Beverage Store, but the store clerk would not accept the bill, according to an arrest report.

Gonzalez was arrested at LaGuardia Airport in Flushing, Queens, on March 20, at 12:24 p.m. and his written statement was taken at the Port Authority Police Department, before he was transported to Sag Harbor Village Justice Court for arraignment, the arrest report states.

Gonzalez is charged with criminal possession of a forged instrument in the second degree and attempted criminal possession of a forged instrument, both misdemeanors.

They are all over Nassau County. While at Panara Bread some where up there they would not take anything over a $20. Maybe its the cash from the stimulus package.
