A New Jersey man who allegedly sold 40 counterfeit silver dollars at a Gadsden pawn shop in June is suspected of the same crime in the Southeast and along the eastern seaboard, Gadsden Police Capt. Regina May said.

Daniel Rivera, of New Jersey, was taken into custody by the U.S. Marshals Service after he was found hiding in an attic in New Jersey.
Rivera is accused of selling the counterfeit silver coins at Mal's Jewelry and Loan on Broad Street, where the merchant paid $1,120 for the collection sealed in plastic. After the transaction, the merchant inspected the coins more closely and realized they were made of steel.
Rivera also is suspected of trying to sell gold coins at another pawn shop on the same day he was in Gadsden, but the merchant realized they were fake, May said.
After a news story about the counterfeit coins, the information was picked up by Coin World magazine, causing a flood of information to come in, May said.
She said Gadsden police detective John Hallman networked with investigators from Maryland to Florida and determined Jenkins was suspected of the same crime in several cities.
It was discovered Rivera, who was believed to have been using a variety of fake identification cards, hit numerous shops in the southeastern United States and along the eastern seaboard.
Rivera allegedly used a fake ID in Knoxville, Tenn., on July 20, and was identified on bank video.
He was taken into custody the next day. Counterfeit silver dollars were found during a search of his vehicle.
Warrants have been obtained for Jenkins for theft by deception and criminal simulation.
It has been determined the coins were counterfeit Morgan silver dollars that commonly are manufactured in China. They are minted to appear in various stages of wear, May said.
Authentic Morgans were minted in the United States intermittently from 1878 to 1904 and then again in 1921, May said.
