MONROVIA (CBS) — Police in Monrovia have arrested two women suspected of using counterfeit money while shopping on Black Friday.

Lisa Davis, 44, and Krystal McCormick, 29, both of Winnetka, were booked on suspicion of commercial burglary and possession of counterfeit bills.

Monrovia police Lt. Jaime Alfaro told the Pasadena Star-News that the women tried to buy $400 worth of merchandise at a Kohl’s on West Huntington Drive about 10 a.m., but a clerk suspected the money to be counterfeit and notified police.

Officers, who happened to be nearby, arrested the women.

At the time, Alfaro said they women had about $300 worth of merchandise with them purchased from a nearby Toys “R” Us and nine fake $100 bills in their possession.
