Man charged with using fake bills at store next to police station

A North Tonawanda man was charged with two felonies after he allegedly tried to purchase groceries using a counterfeit $100 bill.

City of Tonawanda police said the incident happened at 7:30 p.m. Friday at a Tops store on Niagara Street which is just steps away from the City of Tonawanda Police Department.

According to police, Daniel A. Pacana, 36, of Linwood Avenue, attempted to purchase food at the store with a counterfeit $100 bill and then fled when he was told the bill was fake. Pacana was located by officers a short time later and police said he was found with five additional fake bills, along with a wallet and credit cards that had been reported stolen from an Eden man.

Pacana was charged with two felonies — criminal possession of a forged instrument and possession of a stolen credit card — and held for a future City of Tonawanda Court date.
