Authorities are looking for a woman accused of passing counterfeit $20 bills at different garage and yard sales in Maryville over the weekend.
According to a Blount County Sheriff’s Office report, Logan M. Hull, East Brown School Road, Maryville, reported at 9:33 a.m. Saturday that a woman came to a garage sale she was having and gave her a counterfeit $20 bill while making a purchase.
Hull’s neighbor, Lucrettia Myers, was having a garage sale of her own at the same time, and reported a woman of the same description also gave her a counterfeit $20 bill while purchasing items.
James B. Beaty, Jackson Hills Drive, Maryville, reported at 3:42 p.m. Saturday that he was having a yard sale at his residence, when he was paid with a counterfeit $20 bill and did not realize it until his sale was over. It was not certain if the woman could have been responsible, as no description was given.
According to a Maryville Police Department report, April M. Glasgow, East Harper Avenue, Maryville, reported at 12:06 p.m. Sunday that the woman with the same description bought an item at her yard sale with a $20 bill, and the same woman asked her for change with an additional $20 bill. She realized after the woman left that the two $20 bills were counterfeit.
The woman was described as white with brown hair with blonde tips, about 220 pounds, and having tattoos on her chest and arms. She was driving a white 2010 Nissan Maxima.
Myers’ husband said he asked neighbors and acquaintances if they had seen the woman, and told Sheriff’s Office deputies that he had a suspect in mind that could be responsible.
No arrests have been made, and the investigation is continuing.
