A Mankato man known to authorities is facing a charge in Blue Earth County after allegedly trying to pass a fake 50-dollar bill at a Mankato business earlier this year. 

According to court documents, 22-year old Edwardo Xavier Romero was charged Friday with Felony Possession of Counterfeit Currency stemming from an incident on January 13. Mankato Police were able to track down the suspect after reviewing surveillance video that allegedly showed Romero handing a business employee that fake money.
