Counterfeit is defined as “means to manufacture, copy, reproduce or forge an instrument that purports to be genuine, but is not,” under N.C. General Statute 14-199(a)(1). The statute defines instrument as “any currency, bill, note, warrant, check, order or similar instrument of or on any financial institution or governmental unit, or any cashier or officer of the institution or unit; or any security issued by, or on behalf of, any corporation, financial institution or governmental unit.”

Breeden is wanted on forgery of an instrument, uttering a forged instrument, obtaining property by false pretense and possession of a counterfeit instrument. Anyone who knows Breeden’s whereabouts is asked to call law enforcement or Crime Stoppers.
