Three Bend men are charged with passing counterfeit money at the 7-Eleven store on the south edge of Bend early Saturday evening. The three suspects entered the store together, and each one of them allegedly passed a fake $20 bill to the clerk, who surmised the money wasn’t real. Bend Police responded to the scene and put out a broadcast on the suspect and vehicle. A short time later, officers spotted the car and stopped it. From that contact, further suspects were contacted, search warrants were obtained, and arrests were made. More counterfeit money was confiscated. So far, Tyler Jo Shinkle, 20, Brett Hudspeth, 21, and James Dhaenes, 21, have been charged. More arrests will follow. Bend Police are asking for assistance from businesses and citizen in locating the remaining counterfeit bills. If you suspect you were given a counterfeit bill during the past two weeks, contact Bend PD.
