October 21, 2017

Newark Village Police reported the warrant arrests on Monday (10/16) of Estermarie D. Jones, age 27, of 414 Orange Street in the City of Rochester. Jones was charged with seven counts of Possession of a Forged Instrument in the First Degree; six counts of Scheme to Defraud in the Second Degree and six counts of Petit Larceny.

It is alleged that beginning on April 8th of this year, Jones began passing counterfeit $100 bills throughout the Newark area.

The first incident occurred at BT’s on Route 31 in Newark on April 10th when Jones entered the eatery, ordered two nachos and paid with a $100 bill.

On that same day she passed four phony $100 bills at the Dollar General on West Miller Street.

The next incident on April 19th, Jones entered the Rite Aid store and purchased a $500 pre-pay Visa Card and paid for it with six counterfeit $100 bills.

On April 20th, the Pit Stop came across a phony $100 bill in their cash drawer that was used by Jones to pay for soda and chips.

On April 20th, Walmart reported Jones entered the store and attempted to pay for five $100 money grams with six counterfeit $100 bills. The manager was called and told Jones they were counterfeit and canceled the transaction. She exited the store.

On April 24th, Jones drove through the Dunkin Donuts drive-thru and paid for her and an accomplices order with a $100 bill.

Jones, currently on parole, was picked up at Ontario County Court where she was held on similar charges from Geneva. She was arraigned on the Newark charges and released to reappear in Newark Court on November 15th.
