CLEAR LAKE, Iowa – A Texas woman is in jail after allegedly passing a counterfeit bill at a North Iowa convenience store.

Police were called to Pilot Travel Center in Clear Lake on Monday and employees reported a female used a phony $50 bill to make a purchase.  They said the woman then left in a vehicle with a group of people.

Iowa State Patrol troopers located the vehicle on Interstate 35, near mile marker 144 south of Clear Lake.  They stopped the vehicle and 22-year-old Kiaira Fante-earlin Szarwark from Houston was arrested for forgery.

She is being held in the Cerro Gordo County Jail on $5,000 bond.
