According to the arrest report, Cleary was involved in a disturbance at the Super 8 Motel at 11525 East Skelly Drive. Officers found him hiding in a car in the parking lot.

Next to the car, police found a suitcase full of counterfeit bills and a printer used to create them, along with the blank paper to make more.

When police tried to identify the suspect, he gave them a false name, the report states.

Police said Cleary has prior felony convictions.

He is being held on $129,000 bond.
