Albemarle Police arrested a New London woman they say was in the possession of instruments used to make counterfeit money.

Heather Rae Poplin, 31, was arrested Wednesday and charged with possession of more than five counterfeit instruments, police said.

She was placed under a $4,000 secured bond and issued a court date of February 11.

The Albemarle Police Department says they have received a large number of reports from businesses receiving counterfeit money over the past several months.
