Police: Woman arrested after allegedly using counterfeit money

DECATUR, AL (WAFF) - After an investigation and a call to action with the public, Decatur police arrested a suspect in connection with the use of counterfeit money.

Back in May, a woman entered both a Waffle House and Subway asking for change for a $100 bill. At both locations, they claimed that she used a counterfeit bill and left with the change before they could call the police.

The Decatur Police Finacial Crimes Unit conducted the investigation. During the course of the investigation and after tips from the public, they identified the suspect as Deandra Townsend.

The police department obtained two warrants for Deanedra on the charges of criminal possession of a forged instrament.

On Monday Deandra was released from the Madison County Jail where she was incarcerated on unrelated charges.

She is now in the Morgan County jail with a $5,000 bond.
