A 42-year-old Smithville woman has been charged with criminal simulation after she allegedly attempted to pass counterfeit bills off as legal tender at the Dollar General Store in Smithville. Smithville police said Sharon C. Malone was charged on May 13 after she used phony bills to make a purchase, and was found with more counterfeit money on her person when she returned later in the day and attempted to complete another transaction at the same store. Her bond was set at $1,500.
