Ar­rest in forgery case

Sunday Star-Times - - News -

A 33-year-old woman has been charged with us­ing fake $50 notes at sev­eral shops in Palmer­ston North. Rachel El­iz­a­beth Howarth faces five counts of us­ing a doc­u­ment for pe­cu­niary ad­van­tage and pos­sess­ing a forged ban­knote. She ap­peared in Palmer­ston North Dis­trict Court yes­ter­day and did not en­ter a plea. She has been re­manded in cus­tody un­til Jan­uary 15. Se­nior Sergeant Phil Ward said the coun­ter­feit notes looked and felt dif­fer­ent to real ones and lacked an em­bossed de­sign in the plas­tic win­dow. How­ever, the fake money had still been ac­cepted by sev­eral shop­keep­ers.
