KISKATOM — A Catskill woman was arrested on felony charges after she allegedly passed a counterfeit $100 bill at a deli in Kiskatom, said Steven Nevel, public information officer for state police Troop F.

Sarah Jaghamin, 28, was charged with first-degree possession of a forged instrument and first-degree forgery, both class C felonies. She was also charged with petty larceny, a class A misdemeanor, Nevel said.

Jaghamin is accused of passing the counterfeit bill at Two Mama’s Deli & Mart on Route 32 in Kiskatom.

At about 6:50 p.m. Thursday, troopers went to the deli after they received a report that a counterfeit bill was passed by a customer. Store owners told police the woman was a regular shopper at their business.

When troopers spoke with Jaghamin, they learned she also forged a name on a check from a closed account and used that check at a local hotel, according to police. The hotel was not identified by police.

Jaghamin was virtually arraigned in Catskill Town Court and was released on her own recognizance pending a court appearance at a future date, police said.

Curiously, although the name of the Deli is Two Mamas, there's only one mama.
