  • Remember when "Data" found this machine that makes "fifty dolla biwls"? Ha! A couple from Imperial allegedly tried that move. They're incarcerated.
On Monday a couple from Imperial in Jefferson County tried to pull a fast one on the Walmart in Kirkwood, according to the U.S. Attorney for Missouri's Eastern District.

Misty Ann Root, 38, and Daniel Wayne Flynn, 37, were reportedly caught with $240 in phony $20 bills.

Later that evening, authorities searched their residence in Imperial and found a bunch more bogus currency, in addition to a machine that cranks it out.

Yesterday, they were charged with counterfeiting U.S. currency.

Turns out, no. They will not have the money to save the Goon Docks.
