A 34-year-old Sallisaw man was charged Wednesday in Sequoyah County District Court with possession of forged notes.
Timothy Sean Thornell is accused of having in his possession 15 $100 forged bills.
The police report filed with the charges alleges that Thornell had the forged bills in his possession when stopped by a Sallisaw police officer on Feb. 11 while bicycling in Sallisaw.
According to the report, Thornell said the bills were play money obtained at a Sallisaw store, but officers found no play money matching the bills at the store.
Thornell entered a not guilty plea to the charge on Thursday, and his next court appearance is set for March 14 on Associate District Judge Kyle Waters’ felony disposition docket.
On Friday he was appointed an attorney after his application alleging he had no money for his defense was approved.
