A Rodeo man was charged today for allegedly making counterfeit money and passing it on to local businesses, Hercules police said. The investigation began Wednesday evening when Hercules police received a report of a man trying to open the doors to Bio-Rad’s offices at 825 Alfred Nobel Dr. The man was described as a white man in his 50s wearing blue jeans, a white t-shirt and carrying a brown jacket, police said. Officers found a man matching that description crossing near the 3600 block of San Pablo Avenue and stopped him. The man, Marcus Peppard, was identified as the person who had been at Bio-Rad, police said.

When officers searched him, they allegedly found what they described as a “large quantity” of counterfeit money, which he allegedly admitted to making, and police arrested him. Today, Hercules officers served a search warrant at Peppard’s residence in at 216 B Sharon Drive in Rodeo, where they allegedly found more counterfeit money and a computer and printer they believe was used to make it. The district attorney’s office filed felony counterfeit and forgery charges against Peppard, according to Hercules police.
