LEMOYNE -- A 27-year-old Fairview Township man has been arrested in a major counterfeiting operation bust.

Tyler E. Lyden, of the 600 block of Walton Street, Lemoyne, was arrested after a lengthy investigation.

On July 30, Fairview Township Police responded to the McDonald's on Limekiln Road for a report of a white male passing three counterfeit $10 bills.

Employees at the McDonalds were able to provide a description of the suspect and his vehicle, which was said to be a tan, four-door Chevrolet Cavalier.

On Aug. 1, Fairview Township Police responded to the Dairy Queen at 110 Old York Road for a report of a white male passing a counterfeit $10 bill. It was discovered the male initially went into the Smoker’s Express and attempted to make a purchase using a $10 bill.

The clerk in that store identified the bill as counterfeit. After the male left the Smoker’s Express, he went to the Dairy Queen and attempted to make another purchase.

When a clerk from the Smoker’s Express walked into the store, the male saw her and fled.

The description of the white male matched that of the suspect in the incident at McDonalds. He was observed getting into a tan, four-door Chevrolet Cavalier before driving away. A clerk took note of the registration plate on the car.

On Aug. 27, Fairview Township Police located a tan, four-door Chevrolet Cavalier in the 600 block of Walton Street in Lemoyne. The registration on this car differed from the one provided by witnesses by one digit.

The registered owner of this vehicle was Tyler E. Lyden. Police viewed a photograph of Lyden and determined he matched the description of the suspect in the prior incidents.

Police then approached Lyden, and upon questioning he confessed to both printing and passing the counterfeit money.

Lyden was charged with three total counts of forgery and one count of theft by deception. Lyden was arraigned incarcerated in York County Prison on a total of $20,000 bail.

To date, Lyden has been identified as the offender or suspect in more than 80 other active cases involving counterfeit money in the area and charges are pending in those other jurisdictions.
