May 16, 2016 |

Two probationers are in custody at the Sacramento County Jail after they allegedly tried to pass fake $100 bills at the Elk Grove Boulevard Walmart store. 

On Friday afternoon 32-year old Diana E. Vega (pictured above) of Elk Grove attempted to make purchases with counterfeit $100 bills at the Walmart store. Vega fled the location on foot and was seen getting into the passenger seat of a white Chevrolet Suburban.

Responding officers located the described vehicle being driven by 43-year old Lang William Crisostomo (pictured below) of Elk Grove and conducted a vehicle stop. Both suspects were detained and found to be on probation. 

Officers located additional counterfeit U.S. currency in the vehicle and a controlled substance. A records check revealed that Vega also had an active warrant out for her arrest. 

During a probation search of Crisostomo residence, officers located indicia of manufacturing fictitious U.S. currency. Both suspects were arrested and booked into the county jail where they are being held on a variety of misdemeanor and felony charges.
