Brick police officers who noticed two suspicious men running out to their car, then speeding out of the Kohl’s shopping plaza at a high rate of speed have charged the pair with numerous offenses after it was determined they tried to purchase gift cards with phony bills.

The men, later identified as Alfonso Forney, 30, and Bryan Hyman, 26, both of Brooklyn, N.Y., have been charged with numerous offenses after Sgt. Paul Catalina was able to conduct a traffic stop on the black Honda the pair were driving in Brick Plaza, across the street from the Shop Rite store where they tried to pass the counterfeit bills. Shop Rite staff denied them the gift cards they had been seeking. The officers who spotted them were members of the department’s Selective Enforcement Team.

While Officers Ryan Talty and Dominick Puccio were speaking to the men, it was determined that Forney, who initially said his name was Michael Crowder, had an active NCIC Warrant from Maryland for possessing forged currency.

Both men were lodged in the Ocean County Jail.

According to police, the men were in possession of $1,400 in counterfeit bills and several gift cards that were believed to have been purchased with counterfeit currency.

      I bet you would have lynched them on the spot, right? To keep us in line.

        You just said…”to keep us in line”….how many times have you portrayed yourself as white on here in the past when caught in racist hate filled speech about whites….such as when you call us all crackers….

        Frank- your victim mentality just never stops. Seriously, you need to get over yourself. You are a coddled old racist man who blames blacks for every piece of litter you see on the street. BTW- hope you like my profile picture.

      The biggest thieves in this country have always been white. You people stole an entire continent and have the temerity to slander others for stealing paper. White supremacy lets you get away with it.

    Just for clarification, my “white privilege” taught me to work for everything I have – starting at age 14 selling candy in a movie theater. One can justify anything when he or she is continually told that they deserve to take from others without consequence.
