A man accused of using counterfeit money to buy a record of Primeval Greek Village Music has been arrested. 

Jerry Turner is charged with criminal simulation and theft.

According to his arrest affidavit, Turner used a fake $100 bill to buy “Why the Mountains are Black,” an album of Greek village music, from Third Man Records on Wednesday.

Metro police were called to the store for a second time, and employees showed them surveillance video of the suspect in the store. Officers say they were told Turner tried to return the record. 

Metro police identified the suspect in the video as Jerry Turner and arrested him late Friday night.

Turner told officers he bought the record and thought the money was real, according to an affidavit.

Officers say Turner also led them to the dumpster behind the store to retrieve the record.
