Police are looking for 3 fugitives including an Alabama man considered "armed and dangerous."
Police say it all stems from an investigation of people passing counterfeit bills.
Darius Lankford, 28, of Huntsville, Ala. fled to Alabama to escape prosecution on other charges, and made statements that he will not be arrested, police said.
Lankford is reportedly armed with a pistol and should be considered dangerous, according to Poplar Bluff Police Lt. David Sutton.
Police say other persons wanted and involved in printing and passing the counterfeit bills are:
- Jessica Gross, 25, of Poplar Bluff
- Terry Hester, 27, of Poplar Bluff
- Darius Lankford, 28, of Huntsville, Alabama
The investigation started when complaints were coming from Poplar Bluff area merchants to police about the passing of counterfeit $10, $20 and $50 bills.
