  On 03/19/14 at 1745 hrs, Ptl James Gagner  conducted a motor vehicle stop on Boston Rd in the vicinity of Forest St. The motor vehicle was stopped when Ptl Gagner believed that the operator of the vehicle was operating with suspended drivers license. The operator was identified as ORLANDO DAVIS, 32,  of Westfield MA. Mr Davis was subsequently arrested for operating with a suspended drivers license. K-9 Officer Joe Brewer subsequently conducted a police inventory of the vehicle. At this time, ten  $100 dollar bills were located. Upon further investigation, Ptl Gagner and K-9 Officer Brewer determined the  money  was fake.  Mr Davis was charged with posessing counterfeit currency and operating with a suspended drivers license. The United States Secret Service was contacted and is currently investigating the counterfeit currency.
