Texarkana, Texas Police arrested Bobbie Slater, 28, of Maud Texas for Forgery after she attempted pay for her purchases with “movie money” at a local convenience store.
Officers were dispatched to the EZ Mart in the 2800 block of Richmond Road late Saturday evening in reference to a woman who had just tried to pay for her purchase with a fake $100 bill. Within minutes, an officer stopped a vehicle matching the description provided by the store clerk on Richmond Road. Slater, the passenger in the vehicle, told the officer that she had just left the convenience store after trying to purchase gas and cigarettes. When the officer asked her about any money that she might have with her, she gave him six $100 bills that were unmistakably marked “For Motion Picture Use Only” on both the front and back of the bills.
Slater was arrested without incident and transported to the Bi-State Jail. She was charged with Forgery and is currently being held on a $10,000 bond.
