Police arrest a woman for passing counterfeit bills.
Staff at Carmelita's Mexican Goods, 1859 S. 9th, contacted police yesterday after a woman used several counterfeit bills to purchase a money order.
Salina Police arrested 41-year-old Maria Cortez-Flores, 100 S. Phillips, after she allegedly used seven phony $10 bills and two counterfeit $20 bills to buy a money order to pay a water bill.
Deputy Police Chief Carson Mansfield tells KSAL News that the fake notes had the same serial number, no watermark and no security strip.
Mansfield cautioned that more counterfeit bills could surface in Salina.
