A 22-year old woman and 26-year old man have been arrested by Murfreesboro Police after an investigation into fake money being used to buy pizza from Hungry Howies.
Kristyn Bailey and Christopher Sandridge were charged with criminal simulation and theft under one-thousand dollars over the weekend.
Officer Jaymes Marler reports being called to the Lascassas Pike pizza place in the midnight hour of Saturday. The driver told him two people, a female and male, gave him a 100-dollar bill for their pizza delivered to the Kroger across the street. They were given 70-dollars back in change. It was when the driver got back to the location the manager noticed it was a fake bill.
Officer Marler discovered the phone used to make the order came back to an East State Street address. So, he went there and made contact with Bailey, who matched the description given by the pizza driver. When asked if they'd just ordered pizza, Bailey said "yes."
The officer documents asking about the counterfeit bill, in which Sandridge reportedly said "he didn't think it would work" and that he knew it was a "funny looking bill."
Both Bailey and Sandridge were taken into custody.
