Man arrested in counterfeit money case

Perez was arrested and booked in to the Lubbock County Jail.

36-year-old Ruben Jose Perez was arrested Monday in Lubbock for a forgery warrant and failure to identify. Perez was booked into Lubbock County Jail.

Perez's warrant stems from an April 2013 incident where he is believed to be the person responsible for using counterfeit money to purchase tools from an internet ad.

Amarillo Police Department forgery detectives say that the type of money connected to the forgeries has not surfaced in any recent forgery cases.
