NORWICH The Norwich City Police Department have charged two people for exchanging counterfeit bills at local businesses.

Daniel T. Wich, 39, of South Plymouth and Tiffany Steele, 31, of Norwich, were both charged with first degree criminal possession of a forged instrument, a class C felony.

Detective Michael Purdy said the defendants recently received the counterfeit tender from a source outside of the county and police seized about $350 worth of fake $20 and $50 bills. Purdy said the defendants tried to use the money in separate incidents.

He claimed Steele first attempted to use the phony bills at a Norwich convenience store, but a clerk identified them as fake and refused to take them.
