Three facing charges after counterfeit bills spotted (09/09/2012)
By Emily Buss

The Winona Police Department appropriated nine counterfeit $20 bills Wednesday after two area residents tried to spend the fake money at the Hei and Low Tap.

According to the police report, a bartender at the Hei and Low Tap received payment from Amanda Marie Shaw, 22, of Winona, and Ricky Terrell Smith, 29, of Minnesota City, in the form of two $20 bills. When the bartender determined the bills were counterfeit, the police were called.

When police arrived at Hei and Low, they saw the suspects leaving in a vehicle driven by Misty Rosemarie Peterson, 27, of Winona. Officers made contact with the vehicle near Eighth and Vine streets, and discovered another counterfeit $20 bill near the passenger seat, as well as a wad of six more counterfeit bills.

Police also found a bag containing a white powdery residue which field tested positive for cocaine.

Smith said he received the bills as change somewhere and didn’t know the bills were fake. When officers asked Smith his address, he gave a false address in La Crosse.

Smith is facing charges of fifth degree possession of a controlled substance, gross misdemeanor counterfeit currency and obstructing the legal process. Shaw is facing charges of gross misdemeanor counterfeit currency. Peterson is facing charges of liability of crimes of another and violation of probation after she violated the no drinking clause.

All three are being referred to the county attorney’s office for formal charges.
