When Jefferson Police Department officers were assisting Jackson County Sheriff’s Office deputies November 5 with looking for a wanted person at Pine St. Apartments they arrested a Braselton woman and charged her with forgery.
While officers were in an apartment they noticed multiple bills of U.S. currency scattered all over the kitchen table. The woman the apartment was rented to told officers another woman, the Braselton woman, was printing money.
When the Jefferson officer inspected a few of the bills he observed they were counterfeit and were poorly glued together. Other bills had been wet and the ink appeared to have been smudged.
A printed was located in a compartment on a wooden table inside the residence and the Braselton woman’s name and initials were written on the bottom of the printer. The Braselton woman’s purse containing counterfeit money was also found inside the residence.
