(ABERDEEN) ...police arrested an Ellerbe man and woman after they allegedly used counterfeit coupons to obtain items from Walmart.
Sandra Webb Yaklin, 54, and James Vernon Rainwater, 52...were arrested on June 18. Police charged each with one count of felony fraud-obtaining money or property by false pretense.
"They were buying a little bit of something and then using coupons for a free item," said Aberdeen Deputy Chief Carl Colasacco. Colasacco said an alert clerk at the store suspected something was "strange" about the coupons and called a manager. And then the police were called.
Aberdeen police confiscated more than 870 coupons and recovered numerous grocery items, including laundry detergent, bacon, chips and gatorade. The items were valued at more than $150.
The accused told police they bought the coupons online, Colasacco said.
"I have seen a lot of counterfeit money," Colasacco said, "But I have never seen somebody counterfeit coupons"...
