Bogus Bills

Posted on 18th April 2013 at 16:05

Shilo Elania Hall, 18, of Longview is under arrest on a forgery charge, after she was connected to bogus $100 bills that have shown up at local businesses in the past few days. Workers at the Ocean Beach and Washington Way McDonald’s called Longview Police just after 4 pm yesterday, reporting that someone was trying to pass a counterfeit $100. The investigation took officers to a home in the 2900 block of Fir Street, where Hall was eventually taken into custody. Police also say that Hall is connected to an incident reported on the evening of the 15th, where she allegedly tried to pass a bogus C-note at the 15th Avenue Safeway fuel pumps; at that time, Hall reportedly told the story that she had received the bill at a gas station in Castle Rock. The investigation is continuing.
