Off. Moore arrived and and met with the suspect, Jacqueline Rana McFadden, 31, of John Street in Hot Springs. She said that she got the bills from a man she knew as “Ray”. Ms. McFadden was arrested and transported to the Hot Springs Police Department. On the ride to the PD, she pointed out a guy on the street. She said that this guy is the “Ray” that gave her the funny money.
Officers in the area stopped “Ray” Henri Dubois Hatten, 54, of W. 24th Street in Little Rock. His pertinents were checked through the police computer. The check revealed that Mr. Hatten was on parole and wanted by the court on an outstanding arrest warrant. He was arrested and searched. Officers pulled 26 counterfeit $100 bills off of him. He was also transported to the PD.
In all, 30 counterfeit $100 bills were confiscated between the 2 suspects. The bills were found to be missing the security strip and watermark. They were made from incorrect paper. The 30 bills only showed 2 serial numbers between them all.
