At 3 p.m., Burlington Police received another report of male suspects passing a counterfeit $100 bill at The Paper Store, 43 Middlesex Turnpike, approximately one block away from Bed Bath & Beyond.

Officers arrived quickly and confronted all four suspects in the area of Middlesex Commons.

One of the four men fled on foot. The other three suspects – AKINS, DUKARAY, and BRAIMAH – were booked and held at the Burlington Police Department pending their arraignment at Woburn District Court.
