Home repair stores discover phony money

MOULTRIE — Home repair stores in Moultrie turned over phony money on Tuesday to police after two women made purchases at one of them and had the fake bills rejected at a machine at the second.

Lowes, 602 Veterans Parkway N., reported at 6:10 p.m. that earlier in the day two women bought merchandise with bills that later were found to be counterfeit.

About an hour later police were called to Home Depot, where the machine in the self-service had collected counterfeit money that two women tried to use.

The machine recognized that the money was no good and did not allow them to make the transaction.

The only description given of the two was that they were white females.

    Another holiday has come and gone as the month of July counts its days and we once again focus our attention on the home landscape. Curb appeal and maintenance requirements play an important role as choices are made and plants are installed into our landscapes according to plans. Any failure in responsibility towards understanding and satisfying maintenance requirements will definitely result in the potential loss of the new plants.

Negotiation will be required to end the conflicts we have with those groups.
