Butler County pair busted on counterfeiting charges

The Morgantown Police Department recently arrested a Butler County couple on counterfeiting charges.

Police began investigating in late July when someone “attempted to pass” a counterfeit $100 bill at Scott’s Market Gas Station, according to the Beech Tree News. Later in the day, 31-year-old Jarod Phelps and 27-year-old Kayla Darity were caught on surveillance video passing a fake $100 bill at a Morgantown Marathon Gas Station.

The suspects were arrested Friday and lodged in the Butler County Jail. Both face counterfeiting charges. Darity is no longer listed as an inmate.
