Woman accused of passing counterfeit money in York

YORK – Angela Grady, 53, whose address is listed as “unknown” in court documents, has pleaded not guilty in a case involving her alleged passing of counterfeit money in York.

According to court documents, this case was investigated by the York Police Department.

They received a report of a counterfeit $100 bill being used to purchase food at a local business.

Officers observed the bill as well as surveillance video and the person was identified as Reta Roberts, who lives in York. They contacted her and Grady at her residence.

In court documents, Roberts allegedly told officers they could look in her purse, where they found two additional counterfeit $100 bills. At that time, it is alleged Grady exited the residence. It is alleged Roberts told them she had been receiving counterfeit $100 bills from Grady. She also allegedly said Grady had asked her to spend the money for her and Roberts said she didn’t know from where Grady was getting the counterfeit money.

Officers conducted a probation search of the residence where Grady was residing. Officers say the probation officer called Grady to tell her to return home but she refused, allegedly saying she knew if she returned she would be arrested.

It is alleged officers found two additional counterfeit $100 bills lying in Grady’s bedroom which had the same serial number as the bills recovered from Roberts’ possession and from the business.

Grady’s arraignment was held this week in York County District Court. Following her not guilty plea, a jury trial was set for Feb. 28, 2024. She is charged with a Class 4 felony which carries a possible maximum sentence of two years in prison with 12 months of post-release supervision upon conviction.
