BAXTER COUNTY, AR (KAIT) -

A woman locked up on felony theft charges now stands accused of forgery after her family cleaned out her storage unit and found hundreds of fake bills.

Christie Lundholm, 49, has been charged with 123 counts of forgery, according to Baxter County Sheriff John Montgomery.

On Feb. 24, Lundholm’s relatives called sheriff’s deputies to a storage unit they were cleaning out at Lundholm’s request.

While collecting her belongings, the family members opened a piece of luggage containing 123 counterfeit bills in $5, $20, and $50 denominations, Montgomery said.

During their investigation, sheriff’s detectives learned that more counterfeit bills had been found by the McCreary County Sheriff’s Office in Kentucky at a compound where Lundholm stayed.

Lundholm is being held in the Baxter County Detention Center on a $50,000 bond awaiting a circuit court appearance on March 23.

Montgomery said Lundholm’s initial felony theft charge is not related to the forgery case.
