BAYONNE NJ - While members of the Bayonne Police Department were called to 259 Avenue E on a report of a fight involving a knife they found something unexpected, law enforcement said.

According to Lt. Eric Amato, while inside the apartment of the suspect, John K. Azer, 26, who at this point had already been placed under arrest for his role in the fight, police reported discovering $5000 in counterfeit $100 bills. The fake money, police say, was observed “in plain view.”

Azer was transported to Hudson County Jail following his arrest.
