AUBURN, AL (WTVM) -

On Friday, July 17 the Auburn Police Division arrested 23-year-old Luquavis C. Spinks from Auburn on warrants charging him with two counts of possession of a forged instrument first degree and attempting to elude.

The arrest is the result of an investigation of a possession of a forged instrument report that was filed with police on July 16 at a business in the 800 block of E. Glenn Avenue.  

An investigation by Auburn Police determined that Spinks entered the business and presented a counterfeit bill and made a purchase.  

Within minutes of the original purchase, he attempted to pass a second bill and it was discovered that both bills were counterfeit.   

An investigation into the incident by Auburn Police resulted in Spinks being developed as a suspect after he was captured on security surveillance video and identified as the individual presenting the counterfeit U.S. currency.  

Detectives obtained warrants for his arrest charging him with two counts of possession of forged instrument first degree and he was subsequently located at his residence and taken into custody. 

Spinks was transported to the Lee County Jail and will be eligible for a $13,000 bond.

Police also arrested 43-year-old Brian K. Bennett of Auburn on July 17 for allegedly passing counterfeit bills at a business in the same shopping area.
