STAMFORD, Conn. — Two young women from Brooklyn were charged by police Tuesday night with passing counterfeit bills at the Stamford Walgreens, reports the Stamford Advocate.

Sonia Barthelemy, 20, from the Crown Heights neighborhood of Brooklyn, allegedly made a purchase at the pharmacy earlier in the day using fake bills and was recognized by a clerk when she returned to the store later in the day to make another purchase, reports the Stamford Advocate.

Barthelemy's friend, Shaquasia Gailyard, 21, from Prospect Park South, Brooklyn was in the car when police searched it and uncovered items that might have been purchased at two or three other Stamford stores on the same day, reports the Stamford Advocate.

Both Barthelemy and Gailyard were charged with first-degree forgery, conspiracy to commit forgery, sixth-degree larceny and conspiracy to commit sixth-degree larceny and were held in lieu of $75,000 court-appearance bonds, reports the Stamford Advocate.
