Local Classy Couple charged using counterfeit bills to buy Girl Scout cookies


A local cookie loving couple used counterfeit money to buy Girl Scout cookies.

Lena M. Peterson, 31, and Christopher C. Vanbibber, 33, were at a church basketball game early Saturday morning before they headed to Walmart where there were Girls Scouts selling delicious cookies. Peterson and Vanbibber came up to their stand with their disgusting mouths watering and thinking about milk and meth.

Yumi Hohm, a mother of one of the Scouts, said a woman, whom police later identified as Peterson, handed one of the girls $20 for a box of cookies. During the transaction, Peterson kept saying that her boyfriend needed to buy his own box of cookies, because she was not going to share.  Disgusting.  Because she looks like a slob, the Girl Scouts most likely thought that she wanted to huff down the entire box herself.  Instead this sad couple wanted to use another fake bill.

The man gave the troop another $20 for a single box of cookies.

Following the sale, Hohm said the troop was out of change, so she grabbed two $20s from the cash box and went to the counter at Woodforest National Bank, which is located inside Walmart. Hohm said she handed one of the bills to a teller, who marked it with a pen used to detect counterfeits. The bill didn’t pass the test.

At that point, the bank clerk looked at Hohm and said the couple was still in the store, so she called the cops. As she was on the phone with the police the couple approached the troop a third time with cookie crumbs on their shirts and all over their filthy mouths.

A cop car was close by and pulled the couple over.

Peterson was charged with a single count of felony forgery, as well as one count of unlawful possession of methamphetamine, both Class 3 felonies. Police said Peterson had meth in her possession at the time of her arrest.  Shocker.


Vanbibber was charged with two counts of felony forgery.
