Couple Arrested After Duping Florida Fast Food Restaurants

Martin County authorities arrested a South Florida couple Thursday, who they say were scheming out fast food restaurants by paying with counterfeit bills.  

Jeffrey Robinson, 19, of Pompano Beach, and Priscilla Corpus, 21, of North Lauderdale, face charges of possessing forged bills and uttering a forged instrument.

Martin County Sheriff's officials allege that Corpus would: 

  • Go from fast-food restaurant to fast-food restaurant 
  • Pay for her meals with counterfeit $20 or $50 bills
  • Pocket a large number of real bills given to her as change

Authorities caught the couple after they tried to use a phony $20 bill at a doughnut shop in Stuart.

Deputies said they also had two fake guns, several wigs, and a change of clothing stashed in their vehicle.

Corpus was arrested and booked into the county jail. She was being held on a $20,400 bond.

Deputies said Robinson was the driver during their fast-food restaurant spending spree. 

He faces a charge of operating a vehicle without a license and was released from jail on a $950 bond.
