JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

A Monette woman faces two counts of forgery after police say she used bogus bills to buy food at the Lake City Sonic Drive-In.

Crystal Diane Gibbons, 27, is accused of using a counterfeit $20 bill at the fast food restaurant on Friday, April 13. The next day, police say she went back to Sonic and used another fake $20 buy more food.

The following week, Officer Daniel Haynes received a call identifying Gibbons as the one passing the funny money.

According to court documents, Haynes gathered a booking lineup of five people matching the suspect’s description, including a photo of Gibbons. He showed it to the carhop who “positively identified Crystal Gibbons” as the one who gave her the counterfeit bills.

Police arrested Gibbons on a bench warrant Friday, April 27.

On Monday, April 30, Craighead County District Judge David Boling found probable cause to charge her with two counts of forgery, a Class B felony. He set her bond at $50,000 cash/surety and ordered her to appear in the Eastern District Courthouse on May 14.

Gibbons is also being held on a $3,500 cash/surety bond for a failure to appear.

    When a judge set his bond at $100,000 a man suspected of aggravated residential burglary had just one thing to say to the judge: “Good bond.” But, the judge wasn’t finished. And neither was the suspect.
