Austin Police are investigating after a man allegedly uses a counterfeit bill to buy Powerball tickets.
Around 11:30 Tuesday morning, officers say the man used a sketchy $50 bill at the Kwik Trip on 10th Place and I-90.
Police weren't able to stop the suspect at that time, but the same suspect reportedly came back to the Kwik Trip around 2:30 Wednesday morning.
Authorities identified the suspect as 53-year-old John Frost.
He told officers he won the counterfeit bill in a pool tournament.
He's now in the Mower County Jail on a gross misdemeanor passing counterfeit currency charge, along with a 5th degree felony drug possession charge.
