Two women were arrested on Oct. 31 after police were dispatched to the Family Dollar on Railroad Avenue in reference to counterfeit money being used in the store.
The store clerk reported two women came into the store, one with a counterfeit $100 bill. Officers located the women and asked for their identification.
One of them, a 36-year-old Kershaw woman, began giving officers trouble about handing over her ID and started cursing, according to the incident report. Dispatch notified officers that her license was suspended for cancellation of insurance. She was placed under arrest for driving under suspension and disorderly conduct.
The other woman, a 36-year-old from North Charleston, handed over her EBT cards and ID. While looking into the vehicle, police saw an open bottle of wine in plain view, the report states. The North Charleston woman said it belonged to her, the report notes. During a search of the vehicle a purse was located, which the same woman said was hers. It contained a small plastic bag of what appeared to be marijuana, and a joint was also located by police. She was arrested for simple possession of marijuana and open container.
In a separate report, a 52-year-old man from San Antonio. Texas was arrested on Nov. 6 and charged with speeding 39 mph in a 30-mph zone and no South Carolina driver’s license.
