BOWIE COUNTY, TX (KLTV) -
A Denton, Texas couple were arrested in Bowie County Tuesday after police say they tried to use counterfeit $100 bills at a business.
The Bowie County Sheriff's Office says 49-year-old Shelley Samansky and 54-year-old Kenneth Samansky were taken into custody after deputies received a call from a local business owner that the couple had tried to pass fake bills at his store. The couple left the business, but the owner followed them down Highway 59 into Nash.
There the couple pulled their vehicle into the parking lot of another business, where they were approached by Nash Police Lieutenant Keith Chesnutt. Shelley exited the vehicle and attempted to flee into the store, but she was detained by police when she tried to leave the business.
Deputies soon discovered Shelley had attempted to discard several counterfeit $100 bills by flushing them down the toilet and by putting some in the bathroom trash can. Twenty-seven counterfeit $100 bills were recovered from the couple.
Both Shelley and Kenneth were booked into the Bi-State Jail for forgery.
