An investigation into the counterfeiting cases in Hays County has led to two  suspects being charged in a recent matters.

Last week, the Hays County Sheriff’s Office (HSCO) received a call regarding a counterfeit $100 bill being used at a fireworks stand in Buda. A criminal investigation led police to Plum Creek RV Park in Kyle, where they executed a search warrant with aid from the Hays County SWAT team and the U.S. Secret Service.

During the search, police found more counterfeit money and some stolen property. Police arrested Tanya Disirea Bostick (born January 13, 1984), charging her with forgery, a state jail felony. Bostick, who resides at the RV park, was booked into Hays County jail Sunday with bail set at $7,500.

Since then, police have increased the forgery charge against Bostick to third degree felony forgery, increasing her bail to $10,000.

The search also led Hays County deputies to the arrest of a suspect for possession of marijuana, a Class B misdemeanor. The suspect, Stephen Barham, (born July 13, 1981), of Kyle, now has also been charged with forgery, a third degree felony. Barham’s bond has been set at $2,500 for the possession of marijuana charge and $10,000 for the forgery charge.

County law enforcement said the investigation is continuing.
