Deputies say a Lodi woman tried to knowingly pass a fake $100 bill at a business in Ovid.

Linda Barnard, 64, was charged with criminal possession of a forged instrument – as a felony – after passing a counterfeit bill last month at a local business.




Deputies did not identify the business, but noted that the bill was counterfeit. The incident is said to have occurred on September 1, 2021. She was taken into custody on October 13.

The charge will be answered at a later date.
