Easterbrook told the officer that the gun had already been sold, but agreed to meet and buy a couple of guns from the undercover officer. Expecting Easterbrook and Karcher would both attempt to use counterfeit money a second time, the officer set up the meeting. Easterbrook reportedly had paid $1,200 in counterfeit money to buy an AR-15 rifle from Walmart on March 29. The officer noticed Easterbrook attempting to sell the weapon on a social media platform and agreed to purchase the rifle.
Several officers and detectives met Easterbrook and Karcher in the parking lot, and Karcher was found to have 16 counterfeit $100 bills.
