Two Suspects Wanted for Passing Fake Money in North Iowa

The Fayette County Sheriff’s Office is asking for the public’s help in identifying two suspects accused of passing fake money in north Iowa.

In a Facebook post, the department asks for help in identifying the male subject and a vehicle he used to commit a crime. This unknown subject and another white female with red colored hair have been passing off fake $20.00 bills at businesses across northeast Iowa, including in Waterloo, Dunkerton, Oelwein, Maynard and West Union.

Sheriff Marty Fisher says they may be driving a white Dodge or Chrysler vehicle and featured a photo in the Facebook post.

If you can identify or have information about this, please call the Fayette County Sheriff’s Office at 563-422-6067 Ex 0 and leave your tip.

The Fayette County Sheriff’s Office also says a horse suffered minor injuries after being struck by a car early Tuesday morning. Just before 5 a.m. , a deputy responded to a 911 call of a car vs. horse in the 5000 block of Palace Road, approximately two miles north of Oelwein. After further investigation, it was determined that a Ford Fiesta driven by 26-year-old James Fleming of Oelwein was northbound when he struck the horse in the traveled portion of the roadway. 

Fleming was uninjured, but his vehicle is considered a total loss. The horse sustained minor injuries and was returned home.
