Binghamton Fake Coin Suspects Nabbed In Syracuse

Binghamton Police Department

Two men suspected of bilking Binghamton businesses out of thousands of dollars by selling counterfeit silver coins have been arrested in Syracuse.

Authorities say 34-year-old Jaimes Reinaud and 27-year-old Jezan Leon-Barahona were taken into custody Thursday.

Binghamton police had sought two suspects who received more than $6,000 from two city businesses for hundreds of bogus silver dollars.

Detectives say Camelot Jewelers and Toms Coffee, Cards and Gifts purchased the fake coins Monday.

Similar transactions are said to have occurred in Endwell and Owego.

Binghamton police say the men have been charged with possession of a forged instrument in Syracuse.

Police there have confiscated some counterfeit coins.

Federal authorities told Binghamton investigators both men previously had been deported from the United States. They are said to be from Honduras.
