Windsor woman arrested on suspicion of producing counterfeit money

The case of a Windsor woman is moving through the court system after police arrested her earlier this month on suspicion of producing counterfeit money.

According to the affidavit for the arrest of Amy Crawford, 46, she was arrested March 1 after Windsor police obtained a warrant to search her home in the 2100 block of Montauk Lane. When they arrived, they found Crawford in the basement of the home and detained her, the affidavit states.

When officers asked her if she knew why they were there, she said she knew it was "something about counterfeit money." She also told them she lived in the home with her boyfriend, although she hadn't seen him since Feb. 24. They'd both been arrested that night in Longmont, and after that arrest police found five counterfeit twenty-dollar bills on Crawford's person.

When Windsor police searched the home March 1, they found at least one $20 bill with the same serial number she'd used on the other counterfeit bills police recovered after her February arrest.

They found other money they believed was counterfeit, but weren't immediately able to confirm its authenticity. They also found baggies of what they believed to be methamphetamine in the home.

It was enough evidence for police to arrest her. She has a court date scheduled for 8:30 a.m. March 21.
