Its fresh money, just made this morning

Hey maybe the cash was real and she found it along Loop 410?

What? I'm just sayin'

Medina woman, 65, charged with forgery

A 65 year-old Medina woman was being held Wednesday in the Kerr County Jail on $150,000 bond after allegedly being caught with $6,380 in counterfeit bills and 17 phony money orders at a Kerrville store.

Kerrville Police Sgt. Mary Krebs said a clerk at the H-E-B on Main Street called authorities Monday after becoming suspicious of a $1 bill Carol Anne MacDonald offered to pay for a cup of coffee.

MacDonald initially said she'd gotten the bill as change at a garage sale, Krebs said, but a search of her purse turned up bogus money orders and crudely crafted fake bills in various denominations.

MacDonald was charged with forgery and the case has been referred to the Secret Service, Krebs said.
