A Wolcottville man is behind bars for, among other things, passing counterfeit money in multiple counties.

Paul Sykes was arrested on Tuesday after police received complaints that he had guns in his possession as a serious violent felon. When they tracked him down he attempted to hide, but gave up without any incident. At the scene police say they found a “significant amount” of meth, a handgun, blank checks paper, counterfeit checks, and other drug paraphernalia.

He did admit to police that he used counterfeit money and checks at several businesses and financial institutions in LaGrange and Noble Counties.
