Officers were then informed that there was a female in the restroom who was setting something on fire. Officers went into the restaurant and found the driver’s girlfriend attempting to destroy more counterfeit $100 bills by burning them and attempting to flush them down the toilet. The officers found pieces of counterfeit money in the toilet, as well as a wad of wet counterfeit bills in the trash can.
Both the driver, Chancey Johnson, 26, of Marksville, and the girlfriend, Allyssa Chambers, 24, of Marksville, were arrested and charged with Monetary Instrument Abuse. They were booked into the Rapides Parish Detention Center.
