A 23-year-old Winona man has been summoned to appear in Winona District Court for allegedly passing counterfeit bills.
According to a criminal complaint, Austin Victor Schwanke is alleged to have used phony $100 bills to purchase rounds of drinks at Gabby's last November 12th. Schwanke is alleged to have been given change back from each bill.
That change totaled $550 according to the complaint. The complaint says the bartender became suspicious because the bills did not look right.
Schwanke is facing a gross misdemeanor count of offering counterfeit currency.....
