COWLEY COUNTY— A Kansas felon with previous convictions that include identity theft and forgery is now in jail for alleged counterfeiting.

Just after 3 p.m. January 14, police responded to a restaurant in Arkansas City for a report of a person later identified as 43-year-old Amy Watterson, who had attempted to pass fake money, according to a media release from police.

Although she left before police arrived, officers quickly located and arrested her. Officers found she was in possession of several bills of fake currency.

Further investigation determined she had attempted to pass the fake cash at multiple locations in the Arkansas City area, as well as in other jurisdictions.

“We are asking local businesses to be extra vigilant when accepting larger-denomination bills that potentially could be fake or counterfeit,” warned Police Chief Dan Ward.

 Watterson remains jailed on requested charges that include counterfeiting as well as one misdemeanor count each of criminal trespass, possession of drug paraphernalia, possession of stolen property and theft.

Over the past ten years, Watterson has served prison time for arson, theft, burglary and for making false writing, ID theft and and forgery, according the Kansas Department of Corrections.

She is expected in court later this week on the new charges, according to district court officials.
