Woman claims fake $100 came from Mount Olive business

By William Holloman
Staff Writer

Investigation by Mount Olive Police is continuing in an incident at the Piggly Wiggly where a woman attempted to pass a fake $100 bill. No charges have been filed at this time.

Officers said an alert clerk noticed the fake bill, but the woman passing it said she had received it earlier in the day at the Piggy Wiggly when she cashed a check. Police further said the store officials said all their money used to cash checks comes directly from the bank.

In other police action, officers charged 35-year-old James Carter of 126 Country Club Road with driving while impaired, speeding, and driving with no operator’s license. Police said the arrest was made after the car was seen traveling at a high rate of speed on Oliver Street.

Emily Snider of 630 Henderson Street complained to police that someone caused two small dents in her parked car. Officers said a man jumped on the car while getting away from a dog.
