Published: Wednesday, March 6, 2013, 1:24 p.m.
A Cleveland man and his girlfriend drove to Ross Park Mall and attempted to pass $850 in counterfeit bills at the Macy's, according to a federal indictment unsealed Wednesday.
A grand jury indicted Mario T. Herring, 39, on three counterfeiting charges. He was carrying a total of $1,120 in counterfeit $100, $50 and $20 bills when Ross police arrested him Jan. 12, prosecutors say. In a separate case, the grand jury indicted his girlfriend, Senteria Nightengale, 40, of Wheeling, W. Va., on a charge of participating in a conspiracy because she drove Herring to the mall and waited outside.
No attorney was listed in court documents for Herring or Nightengale. Herring is in the Allegheny County Jail. There was no phone listing for Nightengale.
