Lemoyne man arrested for counterfeit money operation

A Lemoyne man was arrested after he confessed to printing and passing counterfeit money, police said.

Tyler E. Lyden, 27, has been identified as either the offender or a suspect in more than 80 active
counterfeit money cases in the area, according to Fairview Township police.

Lyden was charged Thursday with three counts of forgery and one count of theft by deception for incidents in Fairview Township.

Police said he passed three fake $10 bills at the McDonalds on Limekiln Road on July 30, and tried to pass other bogus bills at the Smoker's Express and dairy Queen in the 100 block of Old York Road on August 1.

For those crimes, he was sent to York County Prison on $20,000 bail.

Charges in other jurisdictions were pending.
