Quatisha Pitt, 23 of Racine has been charged with 2 counts of Forgery-Uttering and Dexter Smith, 24 of Racine has been charged with two counts Forgery-Uttering. Smith was given a $100.00 cash bond and Pitt was given a $500.00 signature bond after making their initial appearance in Racine Circuit Court, Monday afternoon

According to the criminal complaint on January 23, 2016 Mount Pleasant Police responded to Burger King located at 6840 Washington Ave for a customer that passed a fake $100 bill. Upon arrival they spoke to witnesses who stated that the defendant (which one of the witnesses recognized from going to school with her) stated that they made a small purchase at the drive through, when the victim was presented with the fake $100 bill she became suspicious, the defendant insisted it was real and when the victim went to get the manager the defendant and a male passenger in the vehicle drove off.

On the same day deputies responded to Subway located at 734 S. Sylvania Ave for a report of a customer passing a fake $100 bill. A female and the male defendant came into the business. The female (we are not naming her because she has not yet been charged) made a small food purchase and paid with a fake $100 bill. The male defendant asked for change for another fake $100 bill. The male defendant was denied change and it wasn’t until later in the day that it was discovered the $100 bill was fake saying motion picture money on it.

According to the criminal complaint, both suspects were taken into custody later that day. The female defendant told authorities that she was at the Burger King with the male defendant with a female passenger and they went to Burger King and Subway to pass off the fake $100 bills. She further admitted to passing off fake $100 bills at McDonalds earlier that week.
