1961 Chain Bridge Road, 12/02/15, 6:15 p.m. Macy’s Loss Prevention contacted our Tysons Urban Team and the Christmas Anti-Theft Team to report a male suspect in the store allegedly passing suspicious U.S. currency. Responding officers located the suspect and watched him enter a vehicle driven by another man. Officers stopped the vehicle and identified both suspects who were wanted for crimes in other states on the east coast. The subsequent investigation produced additional counterfeit U.S. currency, along with several thousand dollars in stolen merchandise. Nathaniel Thompson, 35, and Byron Lee Giles, 35, both of Brooklyn, New York, were charged with possession of counterfeit bills, uttering false notes, and larceny by false pretense.
