Man Arrested After Attempting To Sell Fake Gold

cash for goldWith the price of gold on the rise, some are trying to cash in, even if it just looks like gold. Police this morning arrested a man after attempting to do just that. Police say two men reportedly walked into a Lakewood cash-for-gold store attmepting to cash a ‘gold’ bracelet, but the shop owner realized it was fake and called police.

The men fled but one of them left behind his drivers license info containing his address.

Police made their way to the home where they located the men, both who had previous warrants for their arrests.

One of the men was immediately taken into custody, and the other barricaded himself in his apartment, still wanted by police for the warrants. TLS-MK/TLS-CCP/TLS-DE.

  1. in todays economy you can’t trust anyone (even your closest friend or family member)

    & if ANY deal sounds too good to be true its not true

  2. Is it illegal to try to sell something fake? Perhaps they didn’t know. The store owner could have told them it was fake and game over…..

  3. There’s a shtik that thieves do. They approach you on the street with a fake gold bracelet and tell you that they just stole it and they’ll give it to you at a great price. It turns out that the bracelet isn’t even gold.

  4. The story is as follows: Apparently these guys would not have been arrested had they not had warrants out for their arrests. Kind of foolish of them to try and sell the gold when their wanted. The trying to sell the gold led to their arrests. Next time you’re wanted, try and keep a low profile 😉 Hey, is that rolex for sale?

  5. To wake-up call says “(even your closest friend or family member)”
    even your closest friend ? they are no friend if they try to scam you as for family well if your own family member scams you thats really sad ~ you can pick your friends but family is wwhat it is

  6. If I go into a cash for gold store and want to sell something I think is gold, the police will be called? Isn’t that strange? What if I don’t know if it’s real or not? There’s something fishy here.

  7. Be careful out there.

    It appears that they had the confidence or lack of good judgement or intelligence to try to market their fools gold to a professional. Let the Buyer Beware!

    Wanted people resort to extreme measures to fraudulently obtain money. When they act on the impulse, they are caught. This is the issue with recidivism.
