A Venezuelan woman was arrested after she tried to deposit 38 counterfeit $100 bills at a Doral bank.
Milagros Rosario Gomez Froyo, 46, attempted to deposit $3,800 worth of fake bills at the Mercantil Commercebank at 3105 Northwest 107 Avenue Monday, according to a Doral Police arrest report.
The bank teller noticed the bills felt unusual as she counted the money and confirmed they were fake after further testing, the report said.
Gomez Froyo, who was here on vacation from Venezuela, told police she was doing a favor for a family friend who had asked her to deposit the money into his account, according to the report.
After being interviewed by the Secret Service, Gomez Froyo was taken into custody and charged with possession of forged bills, the report said.
She was released Tuesday on $5,000 bond. It wasn't immediately known if Gomez Froyo had an attorney.
