The Shelby County Sheriff's Office warns citizens of counterfeit money possibly being circulated in our area.
The Shelby County Sheriff’s Office is
alerting the community to counterfeit $100.00 bills possibly in circulation
within our area. These counterfeit bills all bear the same serial number, LB45440078L, and each bill bears apparent Asian characters stamped on the rear. The bills otherwise appear to resemble real US currency in look and feel. At least one other local agency has reported currency of a similar description being recently tendered at a local business. Local merchants and residents are urged to closely inspect any $100.00 bills in their possession; if any bills matching this description are located, please notify your local law enforcement agency and do not attempt to further circulate the bills.
This public warning is a result of a recent investigation and related arrest by the Shelby County Sheriff's Office. On May 21, 2019, investigators with
the Sheriff’s Office Criminal Investigation Division executed a search warrant
at a residence on Glenn Road in Wilsonville, Alabama. This search warrant led
to the seizure of $40,200.00 in counterfeit US currency, as well as drugs and
drug paraphernalia. Subsequently, 48 year-old Adrienne Elaina Blair of Wilsonville, Alabama was arrested
on the charges of Possession of a Forged Instrument Ist Degree, Unlawful Possession of
Marijuana 2nd Degree, and Unlawful Possession of Drug Paraphernalia. She is currently on
release under a $17,000.00 bond.
