3 In Frederick Accused Of Counterfeiting

FREDERICK, Md. (AP) — Three people in Frederick have been accused of using counterfeit currency to buy goods at local stores.

The Frederick News-Post reports that the trio was using counterfeit bills to purchase items at Walmart and Kmart stores, then returning the items a short time later to collect real cash.

Karena Elizabeth Snowden, Christina Marie Laycock and Antwine Dwayne Snowden Jr. were charged with possession of forged currency, theft under $1,000, theft scheme and conspiracy.

The scheme was first reported by employees at Kmart in December. Police said it was a good catch by the store workers.

    As long as we’re on the subject, Walmart and Kmart CO’s–stop your policy of returns without a receipt!! Do you have any idea how much money you’re losing every year, thanks to the shopping gangs that go in and steal your merchandise during their monthly field trips to your stores so they can return it at another location for a full refund?
