Enterprising 12 yo student arrested
Alerted to a counterfeiting ring, police rushed to the scene and collared the prime suspect.
A 12-year-old boy from West Seattle.
The Madison Middle School student used a relative's computer to create 20 realistic-looking $1 bills earlier this week and passed a dozen of them out to classmates, according to Seattle Public Schools spokesman Peter Daniels.
One of the boy's friends used a phony dollar to make a purchase in the school cafeteria Monday, but the con wasn't discovered until cashiers made their tallies at the end of the day, Daniels said.
Cafeteria workers, on the alert the following day, caught an 11-year- old student trying to buy beef jerky with the fake money, Seattle Police Department spokeswoman Deb Brown said.
The Secret Service has declined to investigate

Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?
