Update: According to the state’s attorney, the case against Ms. Feinberg was dismissed.

Lydia Feinberg, 19, of Adams Farm Road, was charged June 3 with possession of marijuana and possession of drug paraphernalia after arriving home by police who had been investigating a report that someone was trying to make change at several stores with a $100 bill believed to be counterfeit, police said.

When she was patted down by officers, she pulled a plastic bag from under her shirt that contained a green leafy substance believed to be marijuana, police said. In addition, police located a glass bowl, commonly used to smoke marijuana, inside the vehicle, police said. After she was arrested and taken into custody, she told officers she was attempting to get change for a bill that her mother had given her.

Upon further investigation, it was determined the bill was in fact genuine. Released on $500 bond, Feinberg is scheduled to appear June 13 in Norwalk Superior Court.
