Suspect Accused Of Passing Phony $100 Bill

In late June of 2019, the Wayne County Sheriff’s Office took a report on a known subject selling a pressure washer that did not work to a Goldsboro resident.  When the victim contacted the suspect to get his money back, the suspect gave the victim a counterfeit $100 bill as repayment.  The case was forwarded to the Goldsboro Police Department’s Criminal Investigations Division.  31-year-old Lewis C. Honeycutt of Goldsboro was identified as the suspect in this case and a warrant was sworn for his arrest on Friday last week.  Honeycutt was arrested Monday.  He is charged with:

  • Obtain Property by False Pretense
  • Possession of Counterfeit Currency
  • Uttering of a Counterfeit Instrument.

Honeycutt was released on a $2,500 secured bond pending his first court appearance.
