Jones County woman charged with forgery

JONES COUNTY, MS (WDAM) -

A Jones County woman was arrested Sunday evening for trying to pass counterfeit money.

Authorities were called to Davis Grocery on Lower Myrick Road where Melissa Creel and her husband Jason Matthew Creel were trying to purchase items with the fake cash. When deputies asked to see the money, they confirmed that it was indeed counterfeit and then asked to look inside their vehicle.

Inside, they found more counterfeit money in denominations of $20 and $100 dollar bills, along with printer cartridges. It was at this point when Jason Creel fled on foot and Melissa Creel was arrested.

Authorities are warning businesses and residents to be on the lookout for the counterfeit money. The Jones County Sheriff's Department is asking the public if they know the whereabouts of Jason Matthew Creel to call the Jones County Sheriff's Department at 601-425-3147.
