Alert clerks at the Arco P-M at Third and Greenwood were suspicious of a $20 bill a man was trying to use around 1:00 p.m. Friday. They called Bend Police. The suspect gave a false name when police questioned him, but upon investigation, found the car he was driving had switched plates and was actually a car stolen from Kingman, Arizona.  They discovered the suspect's real name, Nicholas Swope, 37, from the Dalles and arrested him for outstanding warrants from Skamania County, Washington.  Police also discovered over $6200 in forged $20 and $100 bills in his possession and the printer used to produce the bills. Swope was apparently traveling through Bend from Nevada.  This case does not appear to be linked to other cases involving forged bills in Bend. Swope is lodged in the Deschutes County Jail on multiple forgery and other charges.
