Man Charged With Felony Forgery After Using Fake $100 Bill In Roosevelt
The use of counterfeit money is of course a crime and unfortunately there are fake bills being used around the community. One such example occurred in Roosevelt last week at the Crumbo’s gas station. A 19-year-old man entered the gas station, waited for the clerk, and removed a single bill from his wallet. He looked at both sides of the bill and then handed it to the clerk in exchange for five 20 dollar bills. He has since been charged with felony Forgery and misdemeanor Theft. The Affidavit of Probable Cause states that the bill says “for motion picture use only” on it and he looked at both the front and back of the bill before passing it off as a real $100 dollar bill.

Keys To Stolen Ranch Truck Recovered From Uintah County Jail
When a red truck went missing from a ranch on Deep Creek Road early this week it was located rather quickly and the alleged thief was found to already be booked in the Uintah County Jail. A complainant reported the missing ranch truck on February 25th and told officers that a vehicle had been abandoned about 100 yards south of where the Ford truck had been stolen from the ranch. A ranch hand reported that they had offered to help a male individual at the now abandoned vehicle, which was found to be registered to George Merrell, on February 24th around sunrise. Upon conducting a records check on Merrell, officers learned that he had been arrested around 9am on a warrant that same morning after arriving at 260 West Main in Vernal in a red truck. The stolen red Ford was found in the parking lot in front of a room that Merrell had been living in and the ranch owner confirmed that it was the stolen truck. A call was made to the Uintah County Jail and a correction’s officer confirmed that a Ford key was located with Merrell’s property at the jail. A quick retrieval of the key and test proved that it was the key to the stolen ranch truck. 49-year-old George William Merrell has been charged with felony Motor Vehicle Theft.
