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.
