LAWTON, OK (KSWO) –Lawton Police arrested a man involved in buying an iPhone with fake money after being pulled over the next day for having a brake light out.

Just before midnight Friday, April 29, police stopped an Oldsmobile Alero for having a brake light out. The driver slowly rolled along before a block before coming to a stop at Northwest 12th Street and Euclid Avenue. While writing a citation for having a defective motor vehicle, two more officers showed up with a K9.

The K9, Ory, gave a positive alert to drugs being present and the driver, Dangelo Jenkins, and his passenger were taken out of the car.

One of the responding officers recognized Jenkins as a suspect in an incident the day before involving fake money.

Jenkins was patted down and one of the officers found 10 $100 bills. The bills felt odd and had “For motion picture use only” printed on them. Jenkins told the officer he got the bills during a music video that he was involved in. He told the officers he knew they weren’t legal tender, but kept them regardless.

When asked about the incident at K-Mart the day before, Jenkins admitted he bought an iPhone 6S using the fake money. Police asked if he knew the money was fake when he bought the phone and he replied, “Yes I knew, but I was being foul."

Jenkins was arrested for uttering a forged instrument, possession of forged notes, not having insurance, driving with a suspended license and for having a defective motor vehicle.

Nothing else was found in the vehicle and the passenger was let go at the scene.
