MIDLAND - Two Midland women got locked up last week for using fake money to buy methamphetamine.
33-year-old Yolanda Ruiz and 25-year-old Kimberly Dunman are facing forgery and drug possession charges.
An investigation revealed that Dunman made two counterfeit $100 bills and took them to the convenience store where Ruiz worked about two weeks ago.
Ruiz exchanged the fake bills for real money.
The women then used the funds to purchase methamphetamine.
Ruiz confessed to the crime when she was arrested last Friday.
Text messages on her phone and video from the convenience store confirmed her story.
