BAKERSFIELD, Calif. - A Bakersfield woman faces charges that she counterfeited money and identification cards after her 10-year-old son turned her in to authorities.
According to Kern County Superior Court records, the boy gave sheriff's deputies phony money last month that his mother created. The child told investigators she also had a computer that makes fake ID cards.
Deputies executing a search warrant seized computer disks, scanners and printers.
The thirty-year-old woman is due in court Friday. She faces several charges, including possessing equipment to commit forgery.
Deputies said she was arrested July 4 and posted $50,000 bail the same day.
