Man charged with coming to rural Alabama to buy vehicles with fake money

Suspect arrested in Kentucky will return to Sand Mountain area for trial

POWELL, Alabama (WDEF) – Police have arrested a man in Kentucky on charges that he bought vehicles in Alabama with fake money.

Christopher Gregory was taken into custody in Kentucky and charged with drug and forgery counts.

Police in Powell, Alabama say Gregory scammed residents in DeKalb County buy buying vehicles with fake currency.

The specific case involved an RV bought on Sand Mountain that has now been recovered.

Chief Stephen Malone says “Small towns seem like easier targets for criminals, but we have just as many resources and the same authority as others, so you can go to Kentucky but we are going to come looking.”
