The Subway Employee's Counterfeit Money
Most counterfeiters spend their fakes at stores to get merchandise and change. This Texas Subway sandwich artist put them in the till. -Editor
A College Station woman has been arrested after being accused of passing counterfeit money at her place of employment.
Kashirra Offing, 21, is charged with forgery. Offing was turned in to police by one of her bosses at a local Subway restaurant. Officers assigned to the case said they watched
surveillance video and are using it as evidence.
Investigators said after reviewing the surveillance video evidence, Offing is seen creating a pretend transaction and removing what looks like cash bills from her bra. Offing
then puts the bills under the cash register, waits to open the drawer, then swaps the fake bills with real ones, according to court documents.
Investigators examined the bills and later found them to be counterfeit, they said. One of the bills had the word "copy" printed in two places on the front and
"this is not legal tender for all debts, public and private" in another location.
