Akron woman charged in fake currency scheme


Boardman police arrested an Akron woman on warrants for criminal simulation after she was accused of using counterfeit currency.

Alice Brunson, 29, or Superior Avenue is charged with four counts of criminal simulation.

Brunson is accused of going to the Coach store in the Southern Park Mall and using fake money to buy a Coach handbag and two bottles of handbag maintainer for a total of $618 on Dec. 21, according to a police report.

The store manager told police Brunson paid with 14 marked $50 U.S. bills.

Brunson is also accused of using counterfeit money on Dec. 21 at Ulta Beauty on U.S. Route 224.

The purchase at Ulta was more than $300 and seven counterfeit $50 bills were used.

A court date has not been set for Brunson.

people forget when they install their color printers... their name appears on each and every document that come out of it... in a very small yellow font.. that you cannot see with the naked eye... its funny how fast the FBI can track down a person who thinks they have a money machine... and start producing bills.... next time they need to do the research before they do the crime.... it will save them a lot of heart ache...LOL

Was this woman already under surveillance since she paid with "marked" bills? If not I'm wondering how the person receiving the cash could not spot a fake. Even the good fakes don't have the characteristics of real currency. For example the ridges on the bottom portion of the portrait cannot be duplicated with inkjet paper.
