The landlord isn't going to be happy

Suspected Counterfeiters Clog Toilet:
PUEBLO, Colo. Jan 6, 2006 — Two people suspected of counterfeiting money spent at least a week relieving themselves in plastic shopping bags, because the plumbing stopped working in their apartment when they flushed wads of suspected fake cash down the toilet, authorities said.

Selina Jean Valdez, 28, was arrested Thursday on a warrant for forgery, possession of forgery instruments and criminal mischief. Her suspected partner Daniel Marquez, 41, is wanted on the same charges.
It was one of those cheesy "make counterfeit cash for dummies with your personal computer" deals, but clogging the crapper with paper and pooping in plastic bags doesn't sound that bad.
Investigators said they think Marquez and Valdez flushed wads of the counterfeit money down the toilet on Dec. 26 when detectives tried to question the two suspects. The rental duplex where Valdez and Marquez were staying was discovered flooded with sewage Thursday when police executed a search warrant.
Oh yeah, that's bad. I hope the cops had rubber boots. Tall rubber boots.
