Counterfeit cash, syringes lead to arrest

Christi Session

Press release

Henderson County Sheriff Botie Hillhouse said a woman was arrested south of Chandler this weekend for passing counterfeit cash at a pizza parlor and for possession of syringes laced with methamphetamines.

Christi Session, 32, is being held in the jail after she and another woman used a $50 bill to pay for food at a business in the 2000 block FM 315 Saturday.

Hillhouse said employees called his Office just before midnight, when they were closing, after they noticed the currency looked suspicious.

Deputy Luke Rachel got a description of the suspects and recalled seeing a vehicle similar to the one they were driving while he was on his way to the scene.

The Deputy left the food establishment, backtracked to the last known location of the U-Haul truck he saw them in, and confronted Session.

A pizza box from the business and a syringe tucked between the driver’s seat and the middle seat were spotted by the Deputy.

The suspect eventually confessed to ownership of the methamphetamine-filled syringe and said others could be found in her purse.

She was transported to the Henderson County Jail and booked for possession of a controlled substance and forgery.
