A Genesee County man faces charges after he allegedly used a counterfeit $100 bill to pay for a lap dance at a strip club in the Saginaw area, according to the Saginaw County Sheriff’s Department.

Stephen C. Gidcumb, 32, allegedly paid a stripper with the fake bill during a visit May 13 to the Deja Vu club in Kochville Township, authorities said.

“He had some counterfeit $100 bills mixed in with regular $100 bills he was using to pay the one stripper he was getting dances from,” said Lt. Mike Gomez with the sheriff’s office. “They figured out it was counterfeit and called the police.”

After paying the stripper Gidcumb, who had been sitting in the VIP section, left the club. Deputies arrested him when he returned to the club that evening.

Deputies got consent from Gibcumb’s parents to search their home where he lives with them. In the basement they found printing equipment and counterfeit money, Gomez said.
